The NPFE-LAN works with ESRD patients, family members, and care givers, to bring the patients point of view to the kidney community. The patient voice helps drive quality improvement.
A LAN brings people together to solve a shared problem on a large scale. Everyone in the LAN has an equal voice. In the NPFE-LAN, patients can share their stories, new ideas, and ways to improve how things work so patients get better care; everyone benefits. Within the LAN, members participate in smaller teams called Affinity Groups. An Affinity Group is a small group of people who share the same interest or goal.
