Choosing the best type of treatment for kidney failure can be difficult for patients, especially when they receive little guidance, or have limited time to make this decision. Our speaker this month, Dr. Brigitte Schiller, will share real patient stories to showcase how matching a treatment method to a patient’s lifestyle can have monumental effects on a patient’s quality of life.

During our webinar, Dr. Schiller will discuss:

  1. How patients can achieve a full life by matching with the best treatment option for their lifestyle.
  2. The data on the current distribution of ESRD treatment methods from the US and worldwide and compare these trends with those from the introduction of hemodialysis in the US in the 1960s.
  3. What is needed for a more individualized approach to ESRD care. How can we humanize dialysis care?
