ABSTRACT
The article describes a collaborative quality improvement approach in caring for children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in the Netherlands and Belgium. It focuses on the development of the RICH-Q Project which aims to improve the quality of care (QoC) for children with ESRD. It provides an overview of the first results of the project in the absence of population-specific evidence.

    Background Many children with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) living in Western Europe are of non-Western European origin. They have unfavourable somatic outcomes compared with ESRD children of Western origin. In this study, we compared the Health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL) of both groups....
