The Standardized Outcomes in Nephrology – Peritoneal Dialysis (SONG-PD) is an international initiative that aims to identify which outcomes in peritoneal dialysis are important to patients, caregivers, clinicians and other health professionals. This will inform the development of a core outcome set to be reported in all clinical trials (and other research) in peritoneal dialysis.

Establishing a core outcome set can help to ensure that trials report outcomes that are important and relevant to you.

You are invited to participate in the SONG-PD Delphi panel to achieve consensus (agreement) on the most important outcomes that should be included in the core outcome set for peritoneal dialysis. This involves completing a Delphi survey, which includes three rounds from August to December 2017 and each survey should take approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete.

 Round 1 is now open until 31st October 2017. All participants will receive a copy of the results.

 To join the SONG-PD Delphi Panel, please register your email at:

 Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else who may be interested.

 Thank you!
