A research team led by Jenny Flythe at the University of North Carolina have developed a 9-minute dialysis research education video. Diverse dialysis stakeholders have identified increasing research knowledge among patients and clinic personnel as key to fostering research ready clinic cultures.
“What is research?”
“How do researchers keep study participants safe?”
“Why might I want to participate in research?”
For researchers, the video can help dialysis clinic personnel prepare for facilitating research studies. It can be used as a conversation tool for interested research participants to discuss research perceptions and study information. Medical providers may also find it helpful, to learn basics that enable them to promote research interest among patients.
