Unique strategies for improving the effectiveness of exercise training in patients with kidney failure
There is a common misconception among patients with kidney failure that exercise is not possible for them. But in reality, exercise for patients on dialysis can have huge benefits, including increased energy and feeling better both physically and emotionally. Our speaker, Dr. Ken Wilund, is a successful researcher with more than 70 peer-reviewed journal articles and an expert in the exercise science field. Join us to learn more about the best types of exercise for patients with kidney failure, and how to successfully incorporate exercise into a patient's life.
Dr. Wilund will cover:
- Previous research regarding exercise in hemodialysis patients, including what has worked, and what has not
- Strategies for improving outcomes from exercise training interventions, including outcomes related to patient health and quality of life (How much and what type of exercise is recommended)
- Strategies for improving patient compliance with exercise and physical activity programs
