Improving Medical Decision Making for Older Patients With End Stage Renal Disease

The overall objective of this study is to reduce the burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its consequences for an aging U.S. population. To accomplish this, the investigators propose to conduct a multi-center randomized trial of an advance care planning (ACP) video intervention (vs. usual care) among older patients with CKD.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
