The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is doing a study of dialysis patients’ understanding and perceptions of different kinds of drugs. We’ll be conducting focus groups—informal group conversations with a professional moderator—to discuss the kinds of information patients want to know if their doctor prescribes a new medication.
Focus groups will be conducted in New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago. Each focus group will include 8-10 people who are on hemodialysis. Each group will last about two hours. No one will try to sell you anything as a result of your participation in this study. We are only interested in your opinions.
If you live in one of these metropolitan areas and are interested in helping NKF to better understand how to communicate and provide information to dialysis patients about treatment options, please let us know by providing your contact information and telling us a little about yourself.
Study participants will receive $100 plus up to $50 more if you need transportation or other assistance. If you are selected to participate in the study, we will contact you with further details.
We thank you in advance for your help.
