Home Hemodialysis: Focus on the Patient

April 12, 2018

In this live-webinar, several case scenarios presented will highlight different patient factors that would make HHD an attractive option. A physician hosted conversation with a patient will help the attendee understand a patient’s perspective on personal preferences that would influence the decision to choose or not choose HHD.
