Excellence in Patient Care (EPC)

Excellence in Patient Care (EPC) focuses on ASN’s clinical priorities to provide high-quality care for people with kidney diseases.

Through all its projects, EPC embraces three aims:

  1. To ensure all people with kidney diseases receive the best evidence-based care possible.
  2. To champion patient experiences, preferences, and values by actively engaging people with kidney diseases in EPC activities.
  3. To advance equitable access to high-quality kidney care by promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion and pursuing health care justice.

Designing for People: An introduction to human factors engineering

Whether it is the car you drive or the app on your smartphone, technology has an increasingly powerful influence on you. When designed with people in mind, this influence can improve lives and productivity. This book provides a broad introduction on how to attend to the needs, capabilities, and preferences of people in the design process. We combine methods of design thinking and systems thinking to understand people’s needs and evaluate whether those needs are met.
