Kidney Week

Clinical Practice Session

Advancing Home Dialysis with Technologies and Education

November 05, 2022 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: WF2 Tangerine, Orange County Convention Center, West Building

Session Description

Home dialysis is still very much underutilized in the United States. Eighty-seven percent of patients with ESKD currently receive in-center hemodialysis. Education provided earlier in the disease process can help make physicians and patients aware of their kidney replacement options. Kidney disease education has been proven effective if offered in small amounts at appropriate points in time. This session describes ways to provide effective and timely education about kidney diseases and home dialysis.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Recall learning strategies to increase awareness of RRT
  • Discuss the best timing and setting for providing kidney disease education
  • Describe new technologies in peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis
  • Identify new technologies in monitoring and support for patients on home dialysis

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Dialysis
