Employment for Kidney Patients

Co-workiers kidney patients

One of the goals of the ESRD Network program has been to encourage people with kidney failure to take part in vocational rehabilitation programs. These programs can help people with a variety of conditions to work when possible.

Many people with kidney failure have abilities that can add value in the workplace. Unfortunately, too often these individuals face employment barriers and a culture that does not appreciate the skills they can bring to a job. Active participation in the workplace is a win/win. It can increase self-worth while amplifying their individual and collective “voices” in the workplace.
