More Needs to Be Done to Reduce Racial Disparities in Home Dialysis

Podcast

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Virginia Wang, PhD, and Matthew L. Maciejewski, PhD, who talk about their recent study on racial disparities in home dialysis, and what more needs to be done to increase uptake and reduce disparities in home dialysis for non-White patients.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Virginia Wang, PhD, and Matthew L. Maciejewski, PhD, both faculty at the Duke University School of Medicine and researchers in the Durham VA Health Care System, as they discuss their study published in the March issue of The American Journal of Managed Care®, titled “Have Racial Disparities in Home Dialysis Utilization Changed Over Time?

Wang and Maciejewski discuss what they and their coauthors found regarding home dialysis utilization, how racial disparities in its use still persist, and why home dialysis is an important measure of care quality. They also speak on the future of kidney care and research questions surrounding kidney care that they’d like to see investigated.
