Patients & Families

One goal

One goal of the ESRD Network of Texas is to support quality patient-and family-centered care and encourage independence and improved quality of life for Texans with End Stage Renal Disease though activities that promote patient and family engagement, access to medically suitable self-care modalities and kidney transplant, advanced care planning and appropriate end-of-life care. The Network provides information and resources through newsletters, posters and programs and works with renal professionals to improve the care provided.

Patients can communicate with the Network's Patient Services Director or Network Outreach Coordinator for questions about their treatment, modality choices, grievances or other issues. Information is also available in the New Patient Packets below. Although many answers can be found on the Patient Section of our website, the Network can be contacted to speak with a staff member one on one. The Network encourages patients to become more involved in their care and treatment options. Any patient interested in learning more about their treatment options should first discuss this with their nephrologist or treatment team at the dialysis facility.
