Home Dialysis University for Fellows

About The Event

About Our Event

Home Dialysis University is designed to help those providing care to patients to improve current approaches to emphasizes the importance of individualization of therapy to meet not only laboratory influenced clinical needs but also the QOL needs of the patient. This educational activity will focus on ways to overcome barriers and include discussions of how these were overcome at other institutions that have looked closely at the problem and tried to find solutions. Didactic sessions, small group sessions and group discussions are utilized to help participants recognize the need for learning and help them formulate an approach they can use in clinical practice. Attendees are encouraged to formulate their own approach based on the medical evidence and experiences of others.

We welcome 2nd year or graduating Nephrology fellows.

If you are a nephrologist, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and those working closely with patients on a home dialysis therapy, please visit www.hduphysicians.com for details on the Home Dialysis University for Physicians program.
