Medication Conversion Guide

The Medication Conversion Guide was developed by members of the IPRO ESRD Network of New England’s (Network 1) Medical Review Board. The Forum's Medical Advisory Council (MAC) finalized and approved the Guide for national use by all dialysis facilities and providers. The Guide was developed partly in response to concerns expressed by dialysis patients who did not receive their current medications while visiting other dialysis facilities. This tool is intended to assist physicians to convert the dose of a medication a patient is currently receiving, to a substitute medication that is available, or less costly. Medications converted using this tool must be approved or ordered by the patient’s Nephrologist, however, we encourage all care providers and patients to share this guide with their care teams.
