Event description
“Technologies Transforming the Lives of Patients with Kidney Diseases” MEETING TO BE RESCHEDULE FOR OCTOBER 2020

About this Event

The 8th Annual Dialysis symposium will address how technologies can advance the care of our patients. According to Advancing American Kidney Health mandate by the Department of Health and Human Resources (HHS), providers and patients will be challenged on how to meet certain specific goals , which we believe can only be achievable by technologies placed across the spectrum of one’s journey with the onset of kidney disease. These goals includes: reducing the rate of progression of kidney disease, increasing the acceptance of home dialysis therapies and improving the availability of donor kidneys and lower kidney transplant rates across the nation to name a few. To help address these goals, we hope to help our participants choose the right technologies to help them manage patients from the onset of kidney disease.

Target Audience

This inter-professional program is designed to enhance knowledge, competence, and performance of nephrologists, transplant surgeons, dialysis nurses and coordinators, nephrology fellows, and other dialysis care providers, in cutting edge topics in chronic kidney disease. Also welcome are members of the dialysis community.

Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

  • know how to work with Project ECHO models that helps connect communities with similar goals, connect patients, providers, organ procurement organizations, and transplant centers for access to scarce resources.
  • be able to use 1-2 strategies to remove the inertia associated with constant hand washing between patients and tasks during hemodialysis thereby reducing inefficiency of direct observation to monitor compliance.
  • know how to use automated safety check technology to identify 1-2 strategies to train patients and improve proficiencies of PD.
  • Gain 1 -2 strategies on how to provide more disease management options for people with kidney failure.
  • Increase understanding of the care team regarding juvenile patients and parents navigating the complex management of sudden onset diabetes.
  • be able to educate patients how to navigate the complex listing mechanism in transplant centers and thereby increased the likelihood of getting listed for transplantation.
  • Using current technology, nurses will learn to assess maturation of AV Fistula non-invasively in their dialysis units and be able to educate their patients on the use.
  • h. Utilize available devices and technology that are patient friendly to better manage blood pressure control and reduce impending complications of hypertension and cardiac diseases
  • Learn about the use DATE Echo technology from NYS Kidney Foundation to share knowledge from a community of transplant and dialysis health professionals.
  • Use knowledge of volumetric devices to implement policies and procedures that will result in reduction of hospitalizations and Emergency dept. visits by achieving optimal dry weights in dialysis patients.
  • know how to use free nutrition apps and introduce it to patients to quickly look up what each food item they will consume.
