"The Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) Program is coordinated by Arbor Research Collaborative for Health. The DOPPS is a study of hemodialysis practices based on the collection of data for a random sample of patients from dialysis facilities in a representative and random sample of units in more than twenty countries. The samples of patients in each facility and the sample of facilities in each country are designed to provide a reliable picture of practices and outcomes in each facility, and in each geographic area. In view of differences in patient outcomes of mortality and morbidity by country and by dialysis unit, the study helps researchers:
Describe differences in practice patterns that correlate with differences in outcomes
Understanding the factors associated with patient outcomes will lead to improved patient care and lower mortality and morbidity
As part of the study and in order to translate it, a multilingual glossary of nephrology terms was developed and is available here under PDF format.
It has been manually processed by Delphine Guérou in order to create the following glossaries in TBX and Excel format.
