This paper describes the survival of people with advanced chronic kidney disease managed without dialysis. It uses an anticipated start date for dialysis based on an eGFR of 7 mL/min per 1.73 m2 and separates people based on whether they were offered dialysis and subsequently declined (declining group) or never offered due to comorbidities (conservative group). The timing and cause of death from first assessment is described, providing better information for people treated without dialysis.
