Individualizing Dialysis in a World of Protocolized Care, Including the Celeste Castillo Lee Memorial Lectureship

November 09, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 146 A/B, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

There is increasing recognition that a one-size-fits-all approach to dialysis therapy is not optimal and that treatments should be individualized. However, clinicians often feel constrained by regulatory-driven protocols. This session explores how dialysis care can be individualized and incorporates the perspective of a former hemodialysis patient.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Formulate an approach to individualizing hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis prescriptions
