This chapter discusses supportive care, which centres on the patients of ESRD and focuses on the wishes and goals of the individual. Thanks to the team-based approach of ESRD patient care, programmes for the management of ESRD should have supportive care, along with routine prevention, diagnosis, transplantation, and RRT. This chapter includes sections on supportive care in nephrology practice, the need for supportive care, and palliative and end-of-life care.

Keywords:   supportive care, patients, ESRD, team-based approach, patient care, programmes, routine prevention, diagnosis, transplantation, nephrology practice
