Having been a dialysis nurse several years ago, and now a HH nurse with patients who also are on dialysis, I have spent hours online finding helpful educational materials to send out to the home.. especially for those patients new to dialysis.
I will list some of these links for your use...most are print ready, and I have found our patients are most appreciative of anything we can offer them to help them with gaining a greater understanding of dialysis and their restrictive diets.
Hope this will be helpful to both nurses and your patients !
And this site is quite interesting and enjoyable... gives some real perspective and insight to our patients on dialysis.. their concerns and struggles... and shared recipes !!!
My favorite, The Renal Fellow Network
. Where else can you find a discussion on why bears don't go into renal failure when they hibernate?
