Choosing the right treatment method- exploring home options
Kidney patients have choices when it comes to their dialysis treatment. Each treatment type is unique, and all patients should have a basic understanding of their options in order to choose a treatment type that will offer them the best quality of life.
Choosing a treatment type is something not only new patients may experience, but also those who are currently on dialysis and open to trying a different treatment type.
The goal of this webinar is to discuss all treatment options with a focus on peritoneal and home hemodialysis; two treatment options that are much less common in the United States compared to other developed countries. At the end of this webinar, attendees should be more familiar with home treatment options and what a patient should consider when identifying a treatment option that best fits their lifestyle.
The webinar will cover:
- The importance of goal setting when choosing a dialysis treatment option.
- Hemodialysis, including home hemodialysis, and why someone should consider choosing it.
- Peritoneal dialysis and why someone should consider choosing it.
