Partners in Care
What is the Partners in Care Program?
DPC Partners in Care is a program uniting dedicated kidney care professionals—including doctors, nurses, social workers, dietitians, dialysis facility/clinic managers and others—who share DPC’s mission of promoting quality kidney care for all patients. We provide kidney care professionals with a variety of valuable kidney care tools, resources and information.
