The improper functioning of kidneys can lead to and possibly be diagnosed as Chronic Kidney Disease. My aim is to explore how the communication process affects the outcome of this disease in minorities. Information will be presented from various forms of research. This research will show the availability and accessibility of communication in areas with a higher number of at risk patients.

Communication is imperative for controlling, maintaining, diagnosing and living with Chronic Kidney Disease. Through scholarly based, peer reviewed materials we will determine the needs of communication within the family, community and health care fields. Suggestions will be made on effectively using communication processes.
