Job Trends Among Patients on Dialysis.

By Kevin Erickson, Vivian Ho et al.

In this study, the authors examined trends in employment among patients initiating dialysis and in the six months before end stage renal disease. The researchers found that although working-aged patients in the United States starting dialysis have experienced increases in the adjusted probability of employment over time, employment at the start of dialysis has remained low. The study appears in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
