The CAPD bags will be supplied by the Palliative Care Staff Nurse, who is a member of the Mobile Outreach Team.

If necessary, the nurse may refer them to Secondary/Tertiary institutions for further evaluation and management.

Regardless of the beneficiary’s coverage under the CMCHIS, the Home-Based outreach services will be provided by the field team under this scheme. The guidelines for implementing the program will be developed by the Mission Director in coordination with the State Nodal Officer – Renal Health, and State Nodal Officer Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD).

At the state level, the State Nodal Officer – CAPD will oversee the CAPD component of the scheme.
