Evaluation of the Heartlands Pre-dialysis Peer Education Project

West Midlands
Start Date: 1 Jan 2014

Project summary

The renal service at Heartlands Hospital is planning to introduce peer educators into their pre-dialysis education for patients needing renal replacement therapy (RRT). This is new initiative that will be delivered in partnership with Kidney Research UK through their volunteer support worker, and the volunteer manager at Heartlands. CLAHRC WM will evaluate the service to determine whether it is meeting its objectives, using a mixed methods approach.
