What If...? Campaign


The current global pandemic caused by the coronavirus has called into question the level of preparedness citizens may possess for unexpected events. Patients living with kidney failure requiring dialysis are a uniquely vulnerable population when emergency events occur given their immunosuppression and need for ongoing treatment. Quality Insights Renal Network 5 collaborated with its Patient Advisory Committee (PAC) to update the “What If...?” Emergency Preparedness Campaign, originally launched in 2015. The PAC led the development of the 7-topic bundle, providing specific recommendations for what patients need to know if they find themselves in an emergency event.

What If... A Pandemic?

What If... No Facility?

What If... No Medicine?

What If... No Phones?

What If... No Power?

What If... No Transportation?

What If... No Water?
