Practicing Nephrologists are Invited to Register to Attend


Home Dialysis University


USF Health and The International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) are pleased to announce that we will be jointly providing the Home Dialysis University for Physicians Courses.


Program Description

HDU for Physicians is designed to help those providing care to patients to improve current approaches to the initiation and delivery of dialysis, so overall patient outcomes can improve. The course emphasizes the importance of individualization of therapy to meet not only laboratory influenced clinical needs but also the QOL needs of the patient. This educational activity will focus on ways to overcome barriers and include discussions of how these were overcome at other institutions that have looked closely at the problem and tried to find solutions. Didactic sessions, small group sessions and group discussions are utilized to help participants recognize the need for learning and help them formulate an approach they can use in clinical practice. Attendees are encouraged to formulate their own approach based on the medical evidence and experiences of others.
