Why develop core outcomes in peritoneal dialysis?

Worldwide, approximately 11% of patients on dialysis receive peritoneal dialysis (PD). Whilst PD may offer more autonomy and freedom compared with haemodialysis, infection, hospitalisation, symptom burden, and patient/caregiver burnout and fatigue remain as major challenges to the success of PD. To some extent, this may be due to the inconsistency, heterogeneity, and lack of patient-prioritised outcomes reported in trials in patients on PD.

The aim of the Standardised Outcomes in Nephrology-Peritoneal Dialysis (SONG-PD) study is to establish a core outcome set for trials in patients on PD based on the shared priorities of all stakeholders; which can help to improve the contribution of trials to shared-decision making.
