Expected outcome of the project EDITH is a significant increase in knowledge about the effects of differing CKD treatment modalities, their application, financial impacts and patient outcomes. This knowledge is supposed to have a positive influence on future treatment decisions and, subsequently, on the alignment of health care throughout European Member States and beyond.
Another essential objective is the establishment of sustainable follow-up registries for organ donors and recipients. In accordance with the Directive 2010/53/EU and the EU Action Plan on Organ Donation and Transplantation, follow-up registries are considered as an important instrument to collect comprehensive information on the long-term effects of this treatment. Focussing on donor and recipient information, follow-up registries are considered to serve as a crucial basis for improving patient care and the safety of living donors. Beneficial effects will be strengthened and accelerated by international data sharing.
