Transplantation is the best therapy for most patients with end stage kidney disease. It provides the best quality of life and helps people live longer compared to dialysis. A  kidney transplant can as much as triple a patient's life expectancy.
Transplant First

The focus of Transplant First - a joint initiative between the BC Renal's Kidney Care Centre (KCC) Committee and BC Transplant - is to promote pre-emptive transplants (transplants provided to patients before starting dialysis) through living donation. The initiative focuses on working with staff and patients at the 14 Kidney Care Clinics (KCCs) across BC to inform them of the advantages and safety of living donation and give tools to assist in finding willing donors.
