Ethics

"Ethical issues relating to renal replacement therapy are drawing increasing attention within the nephrology community.... Inadequate knowledge about the disease state and an individual patient's rights can lead to conflicts between all concerned parties. Most of these conflicts could be avoided if each patient (and family) and physician had clear and effective avenues of communication and full understanding of the medical situation."
