Renal replacement therapy and conservative management

This guideline covers renal replacement therapy (dialysis and transplantation) and conservative management for people with chronic kidney disease stages 4 and 5. It aims to improve quality of life by making recommendations on planning, starting and switching treatments, and coordinating care.

NICE has produced COVID-19 rapid guidelines on dialysis service delivery and renal transplantation. They recommend changes to usual practice to maximise the safety of patients and protect staff from infection during the COVID-19 pandemic.
