Maintenance Dialysis (Kidney Week 2022)
Treatments for individuals with kidney failure are rapidly evolving and increasingly complex. Clinicians must have expertise in preparing patients for dialysis, so they can provide the full range of maintenance dialysis options, particularly home-based therapies, and help patients transition to transplantation or end-of-life care if appropriate. Clinicians must also treat comorbid conditions while addressing symptom management and aligning care with patient priorities. During this Early Program, international experts review the key challenges that clinicians face today in maintenance dialysis care. Presentations summarize and critique the latest research, provide useful approaches to common problems, and deliver key messages applicable to daily practice.
