SHAREHD

SHAREHD was a Health Foundation-funded programme that aimed to support patients receiving haemodialysis (HD) treatment in hospital to be more independent and confident in participating in aspects of their own haemodialysis care. Watch this video for more about shared care and the programme.

There is considerable evidence that greater patient engagement and helping people to manage their own health, is associated with better outcomes across a range of medical conditions. Together with our partners, including Kidney Research UK, and a collaborative of 19 dialysis centres in England, we extended the learning from local initiatives and the Yorkshire and Humber Shared Haemodialysis Care programme to build a body of evidence to support a nationwide change towards better patient choice.

For more information on delivering shared care or the research we undertook, refer to our booklet and the Shared Care section  and the SHAREHD Study Protocol and Research section.
