Strategies to Engage the Interdisciplinary Team in KDQOL and Depression Screenings

This session will inform learners on how to better engage the rest of their interdisciplinary team and within their own comfort zone. Learners will be able to understand and use the results of the KDQOL and Depression Screeners in creating meaningful goals and interventions for patient care planning.
