Saying no to dialysis: Choosing conservative care for end-stage kidney disease
Dialysis and kidney transplant are the most common forms of treatment for end-stage kidney disease. However, some patients make the choice to pursue conservative care, and do not seek dialysis or transplant. Conservative care does not necessarily prolong life, but may be the best course of action for the patient, depending on their circumstances.
Our speaker, Dr. Susan Wong, is a nephrologist who specializes in treatment practices and end-of-life care for patients with kidney disease.
Dr. Wong will discuss:
- The conservative care options for end-stage kidney disease
- Considerations for patients or their family members when making the decision to choose conservative care
