Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:. This review aims to look at the benefits and harms of PD versus HD for people with kidney failure commencing dialysis. This review will focus on RKF as it has been strongly associated with death, morbidity, and quality of life in dialysis patients. Although RKF is the main aspect evaluated in this review, other benefits and harms will also be explored. The outcomes included in this review are in line with the core outcomes identified by SONG-HD and SONG-PD (SONG 2017).
