The NAACP ACE Dialysis Health Imperative for Access, Choice, and Equity will sponsor a panel presentation about how to access home dialysis treatment options, on January 28, 2017 in Los Angeles. Patients, family, caregivers, clinicians, community members, and health advocates are invited to attend. For details see https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/nwrn.org/files/N/NAACP.ACE.Forum117.pdf .
Our latest poster/flyer for patients describes the My Life, My Dialysis Choice free decision-aid tool for evaluating dialysis treatment options based on how they fit into your preferred lifestyle, health, and family goals. It’s found its way to the Network 16 website, along with all of our historical patient poster/flyers, at https://www.nwrn.org/patients-a-family/ptedres/mon.html .
The International Society for Hemodialysis (ISHD) offers the 282-page online practical manual, Implementing Hemodialysis in the Home, free on their website. The manual can also be purchased from Amazon for $36. ISHD would like to bulk-print copies of the manual, which they could sell for $6, but to do that they need a print run of at least 3,000 copies. To that end they’re asking interested organizations to commit to buying at least 200 copies. For details on any of these options, see http://www.ishd.org/bulk-printing-of-home-hd-manual/ .
