This workshop offers information for all RNs – those who educate other professionals as well as patients. Ever feel like you keep repeating yourself when providing patient education? Want to know how to teach patients about home hemodialysis (and the differences between in-center and home dialysis)? How do we make the transition with patients to consider peritoneal dialysis first? All of these questions are answered. In addition, Dr. Beth Ulrich discusses how to improve “high-risk” and “low volume” issues that impact patient safety.
Contact hours available until 10/13/2016.
