Talk to your patients about home dialysis
Home dialysis offers your patients greater scheduling flexibility, fewer food restrictions and better outcomes—so they can maintain the lifestyles they love while achieving their health goals. Plus, most patients are candidates for home dialysis, even if they start in the hospital or at the center.
