When diagnosed with End Stage Kidney Disease it is often not just your physical well-being that changes; your ability to carry on your work and engage with society in the way you have in the past may also change. This is where our Patient Support Team can help.
Patient Support Team
Based at IKA headquarters, working closely with the Chief Executive, the Patient Support Team offer a unique service supporting patients and their families experiencing the practical challenges of living with End Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD). Navigating a path of social welfare entitlements and medical cards can be extremely daunting for a patient and/or their families. The patient support team’s aim is to help identify the most appropriate support for each patient/family ensuring both their long and short-term needs are being addressed. This can often require referrals onwards to other agencies such as the Department of Social Protection and other patient organisations.
