Maintenance Dialysis

Course Description

The treatment of patients with stage 5 kidney disease is always evolving. Research findings challenge old paradigms and introduce new concepts; technologic developments offer new opportunities and therapeutic options; and additional financial constraints constantly push us toward providing high value care. This program critically reviews established norms and explores emerging concepts in dialysis care. It synthesizes new and old data to help physicians incorporate these findings into their daily clinical practice, with a focus on improving patient well-being and outcomes. Underlying physiology and pathophysiology are discussed, along with potential therapeutic interventions such as new developments in peritoneal dialysis (PD), patient-centered care, and cardiovascular risk reduction.

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to: 1. describe the rationale and clinical role of recent advances in management of PD and in-center and home hemodialysis (HD); 2. apply recent evidence to improve patient experience and reduce hospitalizations; and 3. describe the current evidence to attenuate cardiovascular risk in patients undergoing maintenance dialysis.
