This study addresses the need to rigorously advance the science and understanding of the development, feasibility, acceptability and adoption of novel culturally-sensitive motivational strategies to improve dialysis treatment adherence among African Americans with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). This study specifically aims to:

  1. Gain advanced skills in the development and implementation of novel culturally sensitive motivational strategies
  2. Acquire critical preliminary data for an R01-funded phase II efficacy trial testing the use of these motivational strategies to improve dialysis treatment adherence.
