Dispelling myths and providing concrete information regarding home modalities is often a challenge for in-center chairside dialysis practitioners. Another ESRD Network organization (HealthInsight ESRD Alliance Network 16 and 18) has created materials that help patients distinguish between myth and fact in an easy FAQ format. We hope these materials, which can be found at the links below, provide resources for you to offer your patients when they are considering whether home therapy is right for them.
