The staff of the Dialysis Unit believes that supplying educational resources is a vital component to providing the highest level of care to patients.  We have compiled an extensive set of educational resources. This information is meant to help patients and their families explore the conditions that affect the kidney. Knowledge gained could be helpful when preparing for a visit or can aid in understanding the process and terminology used by the dialysis staff.  Educational topics include:

  • Health risks of chronic kidney disease
  • Dietary management
  • Home PD instruction
  • Dialysis access care
  • Transition to adult care

Glossary
