For over 15 years DOPPS has been collecting data on international hemodialysis practices. The bundled Prospective Payment System in the United States has generated concerns regarding potential negative practice changes. DOPPS has now launched a Practice Monitor (DPM) to monitor changes in practice delivery and outcomes. The information garnered in this session will be relevant to nephrology nurses attempting to optimize practice with constrained resources.
