Expanding Utilization of Home Dialysis: Findings of the International Home Dialysis Roundtable
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront the importance of access to home dialysis. In the fall of 2020, leading kidney care organizations came together as an “International Home Dialysis Roundtable” (IHDR)* to address strategies to increase access to and uptake of home dialysis, both peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis. The findings of the IHDR have been published in the article “Expanding Utilization of Home Dialysis: An Action Agenda From the First International Home Dialysis Roundtable.” This webinar will address the main findings of the IHDR, highlighting best practices and successful strategies for, as well as barriers to, home dialysis.
1. Provide an overview of the main findings of the IHDR.
2. Discuss the barriers to home dialysis.
3. Highlight best practice and strategies for home dialysis.
The Expanding Utilization of Home Dialysis: Findings of the International Home Dialysis Roundtable, Brussels, Belgium, 28/10/2021-28/10/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 1 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.”
