PD (Peritoneal Dialysis) University for Interventionalists provides a two-step approach to training Interventional Nephrologists and Interventional Radiologists to place catheters for peritoneal dialysis using image guided techniques. The first step involves an online series of comprehensive lectures covering all aspects of creating and maintaining PD access. The lecture topics are organized in a logical fashion, one subject building upon the previous, and therefore we suggest that they be viewed in the prescribed sequence.
This Webinar offers an interactive Q&A session following each pre-recorded lecture with PDU Faculty. The lectures and recorded Q&A sessions will be available upon demand after the conclusion of the scheduled event.
Upon completion of the series, the learner may request CME credits.
Completion of the didactic lecture portion of this program also qualifies the participant to register for the CME accredited second step of the course comprised of a hands-on workshop of PD access techniques. Participation in the hands-on training will be by invitation only and will follow completion of this portion of the course.
This course is designed for Interventional Nephrologists and Interventional Radiologist without regard to PD catheter placement experience.
