Firstly, thank you for support and for letting the people at IHD know about this new resource.
We hope it will be another useful resource for those living through CKD and into dialysis ... adding, we hope, a new dimension to the 'choices' vaccuum that has afflicted especially US patients facing the inevitability of dialysis - and the decision about 'which' dialysis.
I am sorry that IHD was omitted as a resource: it was not meant as an intentional slight. It is difficult to include all of the resources available ... and indeed, despite my co-authorship, the many excellent Australian, Canadian and European and UK resource opportunities 'out there' were also not included - for to do so would require an almost endless list.
This is not an excuse for the oversight - though once overlooked in a printed book, there is little we can now do to redress, other than to say that we apologise. We fully recognise and concur with the value of a peer-group cyber-site/chat-room - a peer mechanism that provides enormous 'been there, done that' support to others experiencing the same pathways ... and we hear your frustrations that it was not included.
What else can I say but that I am sorry.
As for an audio version - no, there havent been plans for this and I suspect the issues will be a combination of both funding + resource availability, and time availability.
We are hoping (in the future) to create an App for Iphone and Ipad to act as a choice and options aid ... but this is likely a little way away yet. As a 100% full-time clinical nephrologist with my own long list of daily consults, ward service, unit and hospital responsibilities, research and speaking demands, there is only just so much time in a day ...!
