The Patient-Centered Approach
The main goal of HOPE is to help people who are receiving hemodialysis treatment manage their pain and how it interferes with their lives. Since helping patients is at the core of HOPE’s mission, patients have been at the core of bringing the HOPE Trial to life.
The Patient Advisory Group has been involved in the creation of the HOPE Trial since the very beginning. From writing the study informed consent forms to providing critical feedback on how to approach potential participants, our patient advisors have helped to mold HOPE into a thoroughly considered, and patient-centered research study.
