Update RICH-Q

Advisory Board Meeting

October 2011

Rich q 1 rich q 2

-Goals and achievements


-Current number of patients

Goals rich q 1
Goals RICH-Q 1

  • To establish the current quality of care in children with ESRD in the Netherlands and Belgium

  • To increase the quality of care of children with ESRD by frequent peer review and discussions of local outcomes

  • To build up a comprehensive database on treatment characteristics and outcomes in order to conduct prospective outcomes studies

  • To foster clinical studies


  • Database and website

  • Survey of treatment policies

  • Advisory board meetings (8)

  • 11 centers: Cologne

  • Consensus meetings of quality indicators/ benchmarks

  • 2SR’s

    management of children with ESRD

    PWV measurement instruments.

  • Assessment of the reproducibility and validity of PWV and echocardiogram measurements

  • Add-on studies

  • Study groups

  • Several presentations

  • Papers

What have we learned 1
What have we learned? (1)

  • Important differences in dialysis policies:

    - between centres

    - between policy and actual care

  • 17 guidelines, 369 recommendations

    only 6% evidence based

  • Immigrants

    - Tx: less pre-emptive and living donor

    higher risk for acute rejection

    - Dialysis: more HD (less PD)

    longer HD, more ROD, more peritonitis

Update rich q

What have we learned? (2)

  • Pulse Wave Velocity

    • Smallest Detectable Change 1.05 m/s

  • Echocardiogram

    • low agreement diagnosis LVH

    • Smallest Detectable Change 1.6 mm

  • Tissue doppler: more detection of DD compared to conventional echocardiogram

  • Change in QoC

    • (guideline implementation and benchmarks)

  • Useful outcome measures

  • Continuation of the add-on studies


  • Comparison of two instruments measuring carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity: Vicorder versus SphygmoCor JoH

  • Lessons learned from efforts to improve the quality of care in children with end-stage renal disease in the Netherlands and Belgium. ADC

  • Important differences in management policies for children with end-stage renal disease in the Netherlands and Belgium – Report from the RICH-Q study. NDT

  • Less pre-emptive renal transplantations and more rejections in immigrant children compared to native Dutch and Belgian children. NDT


  • Scope and foundation of current guidelines for the management of chronic dialysis in children; a systematic review: a systematic review. NDT

  • Reproducibility of pulse wave velocity measurement in children with end-stage renal disease. Ped Neph

  • Chronic dialysis treatment and outcomes differ between immigrant and native Dutch and Belgian children. Ped Neph

  • Clinimetric characteristics of instruments that measure pulse wave velocity in adults and children are poorly reported: a systematic review. J. Clin epi.

In progress
In progress

  • Low agreement between cardiologists diagnosing LVH in children with ESRD

  • Does Tissue Doppler measurement lead to earlier detection of diastolic dysfunction in children with ESRD than conventional ultrasound measurement of E/A ratio?

  • Important differences in management policies for renal transplantation in children in the Netherlands and Belgium -Report from the RICH-Q study

  • The RICH-Q effect of 4 years feedback of care information, peer discussion and guideline development on standard of care in centres for RRT in children

  • Quality of life in Dutch and Belgian children with End Stage Renal Disease
