The community care team at Peterborough Dialysis Unit have recently held their first home hemo group meeting. Long overdue but a good idea. It helps to get the patients dialysing at home, together to share experiences and best practice, as well as extend knowledge and gain advice on a wide range of issues. A number of topics have been proposed for future meetings, and these meetings are to be held quarterly. I’ll either post updates on this blog or on the home hemo forum.(see below)
The team are also planning a self-care / home hemo day on the main unit to enable new and existing patients to consider home hemo for the future.
A new home hemo forum is in the process of being established that can pull together the thoughts and issues from the wider home hemo community. More on this to come shortly.
