As results from clinical studies cause current anemia management practices to be called into question, the nephrology nurse is called upon to develop treatments that take all patients’ needs into consideration and move away from a “one-size fits all mentality.” This session explores the current status of the standardized anemia management and the changing considerations of practice to help ensure a culture of safety while lowering the incidence of healthcare-induced harm, disability, and death. This activity is supported by an educational grant from Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. and Affymax, Inc.
