Patient-Reported Outcomes and Shared Decision-Making in Nephrology Care

In nephrology care, patient-reported outcomes (PROs) and shared decision-making (SDM) play pivotal roles in fostering patient-centered approaches and optimizing treatment plans. PROs, which encompass patients' perspectives on their health status, symptoms, and quality of life, provide valuable insights into the impact of kidney diseases on patients' daily lives. By incorporating PROs into clinical assessments, nephrologists gain a more comprehensive understanding of patients' needs, preferences, and treatment goals, allowing for tailored interventions that address individual priorities and concerns. Moreover, PROs facilitate open communication between patients and healthcare providers, fostering trust, engagement, and shared decision-making. SDM involves collaborative discussions between patients and clinicians to explore treatment options, discuss risks and benefits, and arrive at mutually agreed-upon decisions. By involving patients in the decision-making process, SDM promotes autonomy, adherence, and satisfaction with treatment plans. Incorporating PROs and SDM into nephrology care enhances patient outcomes, promotes patient-centered care, and empowers individuals to actively participate in managing their kidney health, ultimately leading to improved quality of life and treatment adherence in renal medicine.
