End stage renal disease (ESRD), specifically dialysis access, is a complicated condition treated by a variety of medical specialists with varied perspectives and skill-sets. Population growth predictions suggest that the burden of providing maintenance dialysis in coming decades will be daunting.
Access to reliable and applicable training in ESRD / dialysis access is limited, and significant treatment protocol disparity exists globally among professionals.
At Kidney Academy, we believe that training empowers the medical treatment team and is paramount to improve patient outcomes.
Kidney Academy, a non-profit entity dedicated to the global dialysis access community, is currently building an online platform to deliver accredited training and education and offer a forum for collaboration and idea sharing for this community.
