Title of Collaborative Activity:

Fistula First

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Fistula First Breakthrough Coalition (FFBI) works together with the entire renal community to ensure that every suitable patient will receive the most optimal form of vascular access, which, in most cases, will be a native arteriovenous fistula (AV fistula). The FFBI also focuses on reducing catheter use and vascular access complications. During FY 2010, the National Kidney Disease Education Program collaborated with Fistula First to produce a series of web-based provider and patient educational videos.
