MONTREAL, Nov. 5, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Kidney Foundation of Canada -
Quebec Branch invites the media to the unveiling of the results of a Study on the Economics of Kidney Failure.
This information session will apprise journalists of the costs
associated with dialysis, kidney transplantation's direct and indirect
economic benefits to our health system, and the associated social
costs. As the population ages and the incidence of diabetes increases,
kidney failure numbers continue to climb. If every patient currently
awaiting a kidney were to receive a transplant today, the healthcare
system would save $50 million a year.
