This paper updates a previous 'Call to Action' paper (Nephrology 2011; 16: 19-29) that reviewed key outcome data for Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and made recommendations to improve care. Since its publication, peritonitis rates have improved significantly, although they have plateaued more recently. PD patient and technique survival in ANZ have also improved, with a reduction in the proportion of technique failures attributed to 'social reasons'. Despite these improvements, technique survival rates overall remain lower than in many other parts of the world. This update includes additional practical recommendations based on published evidence and emerging initiatives to further improve outcomes.
