Description

Module 10 of Kidney School provides information about how to measure the effectiveness of dialysis treatments as well as how to recognize the signs and symptoms of inadequate dialysis. Because dialysis replaces only a small part of kidney function, getting the right amount of treatment is key to living long and living well. This module also explains the important elements of a dialysis prescription, how dialyzers differ from one another, and how dialyzer reuse affects treatments.

The purpose of Kidney School Continuing Education courses is to enable the learner to better understand the medical and psychosocial impacts of end stage renal disease, as well as patients’ experience of coping with this chronic condition.
