Dialysis care is an integral part of the practice of nephrology. Despite this, education of fellows in providing dialysis often remains rudimentary, relying on a combination of didactics and learning through experience. This runs the risk of training nephrologists who can provide dialysis care without truly being experts on the subject. In this article, a collection of novel or innovative teaching methods is presented that are meant to provide training programs with additional tools with which to improve the training of their fellows in dialysis...

The in-center dialysis unit and practice of dialysis, in the current multi-team approach, requires knowledge and skills in all the domains including medical expert, communicator, collaborator, scholar, health advocate, and leader. We are tasked as a community, to embrace and incentivize new innovations and technology to address these needs for our post graduate trainees. These innovations must address the basic principles of dialysis, quality improvement, technical and procedural skills as well as leadership and administration skills...

The prevalence of end-stage renal disease is rising in the United States, which bears high financial and public health burden. The most common modality of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in the United States is in-center hemodialysis. Many patients report lack of comprehensive and timely education about their treatment options, which may preclude them from participating in home-based dialysis therapies and kidney transplantation evaluation. While RRT education has traditionally been provided in-person, the rise of telehealth has afforded new opportunities to improve upon the status quo...

Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is rapidly emerging as a bedside diagnostic tool that can enhance physical diagnosis and facilitate clinical decision making. Although ultrasound is widely used by nephrologists for vascular access and kidney imaging, diagnostic POCUS skills in other anatomic areas are not part of routine nephrology training. In this narrative review, we will provide an overview of selected POCUS techniques, highlight potential uses of POCUS in routine nephrology practice, and describe a new curriculum implemented at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to teach diagnostic POCUS skills to nephrology fellows...

Peritoneal dialysis is the most common modality for home dialysis and to ensure patients have access to dialysis at home, training programs have to ensure that the fellows attain clinical competency in the care of such patients. The limited data available however are sobering; about 10 years ago, 44% of nephrologists reported that they did not feel competent in the care of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis. There are recognizable challenges in ensuring clinical competency of trainees that may need creative solutions...

The purposes of this study were to identify the level of fatigue and to examine the predictors of fatigue in female patients on hemodialysis. The subjects for this study were 130 female patients at one hemodialysis unit in northern Taiwan. On univariate analyses, patients with higher levels of fatigue were more likely to be older, and have less education, lower serum albumin levels, sleep disturbances, and perceived higher level of hemodialysis stressors. The findings of this study can help nephrology nurses recognize fatigue as an important nursing issue for female patients on hemodialysis...

With the number of migrants and refugees increasing globally, the nephrology community is increasingly confronted with issues relating to the management of end-stage kidney disease in this population, including medical, logistical, financial, and moral-ethical questions. Beginning with data for the state of affairs regarding refugees in Europe and grounded in moral reasoning theory, this Policy Forum Perspective contends that to improve care for this specific population, there is a need for: (1) clear demarcations of responsibilities across the societal (macro), local (meso), and individual (micro) levels, such that individual providers are aware of available resources and able to provide essential medical care while societies and local communities determine the general approach to dialysis care for refugees; (2) additional data and evidence to facilitate decision making based on facts rather than emotions; and (3) better information and education in a broad sense (cultural sensitivity, legal rights and obligations, and medical knowledge) to address specific needs in this population...

BACKGROUND: Medical practice trends and limitations in trainees' duty hours have diminished the interest and exposure of nephrology fellows to percutaneous kidney biopsy (PKB). We hypothesized that an integrated nephrology-pathology-led simulation may be an effective educational tool. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 4-hour PKB simulation workshop (KBSW), led by two ultrasonography (US)-trained nephrologists and two nephropathologists, consisted of 6 stations: 1) diagnostic kidney US with live patients, 2) kidney pathology with plasticine models of embedded torso cross-sections, 3) US-based PKB with mannequin (Blue Phantom™), 4) kidney pathology with dissected cadavers, 5) US-based PKB in lightly-embalmed cadavers, and 6) tissue retrieval adequacy examination by microscope...

Vascular access for haemodialysis is key in renal patients both due to its associated morbidity and mortality and due to its impact on quality of life. The process, from the creation and maintenance of vascular access to the treatment of its complications, represents a challenge when it comes to decision-making, due to the complexity of the existing disease and the diversity of the specialities involved. With a view to finding a common approach, the Spanish Multidisciplinary Group on Vascular Access (GEMAV), which includes experts from the five scientific societies involved (nephrology [S...

BACKGROUND: Fifty to eighty percent of patients suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) experience a form of sexual dysfunction (SD), even after renal transplantation. Despite this, inquiring about SD is often not included in the daily practice of renal care providers. OBJECTIVES: This paper explores the perspectives of renal social workers regarding sexual care for patients and evaluates their practice, attitude towards responsibility and knowledge of SD. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study was conducted using a 41-item online survey...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a relatively common condition, encountered in everyday paediatric clinical practice. It is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in children both inside and outside intensive care units. It is associated with prolonged hospital stay and progression to chronic kidney disease. The burden of AKI is particularly high in low- and middle-income countries where rural areas and smaller cities in the countryside predominate. Most of these areas suffer from poverty, poor sanitation, water quality and hygiene, lack of education and poor access to health care...

The need to assess clinical competencies in a medical environment is an intriguing issue due to progressive involvement of young physicians in clinical practice, as well as for connections tied to evaluation systems to define postgraduate training and career progression. To reach this goal, system must be based upon contributions that are aimed to achieve a clear and homogeneous evaluation pathway and strictly related to the continuing medical education institution (credits). All these presuppositions are instrumental for the proposal of a sheet which could allow a data retrieval useful to depict a career progression by means of: identification of reproducible parameters along with clear standards; advices for indicators; objective judgments that could drive to a score meaningful for reaching higher steps in the performance evaluation...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Up to 50% patients requiring dialysis receive an urgent, unplanned start (UPS) to renal replacement therapy (RRT). Most of these are initiated with an intravenous catheter and commenced and maintained on hemodialysis (HD). Although peritoneal dialysis (PD) could be an equipotent initial modality for RRT, it is used less frequently as long-term RRT in UPS patients. This multicenter-study aimed to evaluate the impact of a structured, in-hospital education program and factors influencing PD rates, especially in UPS patients...

In the United States, the responsibilities and scope of practice of nephrology nurses and patient care technicians working in hemodialysis units vary from state to state. This occurs in relation to the care and management of central venous catheters (CVCs) used for hemodialysis. The aim of this article is to review the pros and cons of non-nursing staff performing the management and care of CVCs. The pros include decreasing nursing task time, allowing nurses to devote their time to other higher functioning roles, while the cons include lack of technician skill, education, and experience to perform CVC management and care...

Because of the significant costs related to the treatment of end-stage kidney disease by dialysis, Belgian Health Care Authorities proposed in June 2009 to launch an early multidisciplinary care plan for chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients in the form of a clinical care pathway (CCP) focusing on a combined follow-up by the general practitioner and the nephrologist. The objective was to increase nephro-protection measures, reduce patient morbidity and mortality, and delay admission on dialysis. Our Nephrology Department at Erasme Hospital took the opportunity of CCP to set up workshops on therapy education which promote CKD patients' compliance and autonomy regarding their treatment (" empowerment ")...
