INTRODUCTION TO HOME HD

Introduction
Home Haemodialysis (HHD) is an ideal treatment option for suitable patients requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT). There are challenges involved in the successful implementation of HHD. Appropriate advance planning of the home infrastructure and environment, suitable patient education, finding the appropriate regimen of treatments, home visits schedule and ongoing support to patients and their family members help ensure a smooth start and the continual success of HHD over a long period.


Project name - 
Home Haemodialysis - A Nurses Guide to Implementing Best Practice in Home Heamodialysis

WHAT
The intent is to provide insight and education in order to increase the awareness of the possibilities of Home Haemodialysis.

WHY
Increasingly dialysis patients are seeking the life-changing freedom, improved energy, and logistical benefits that more frequent home haemodialysis can provide.

HOW 
Collaboration with EDTNA/ERCA – the multi-disciplinary experts.

WHEN 
Q3 2016 –Q3 2019

The Collaboration Programme was split into four Phases. 

Phase 1 - Book - Launch at the 46th EDTNA/ERCA International Conference, Krakow, Poland, September 9 -12 , 2017

The purpose of this guide

  • The patient enters into an often life-long relationship with the dialysis
  • The healthcare professional team is responsible to ensure that a patient, in the pre-dialysis phase, chooses the treatment that is best suited by ensuring they are fully informed of the options available to them
  • However, how should the patient, after receiving information of the different options, choose?
  • Many start on In-Centre treatment for a while. This is an opportunity for the patient to discover that the entire healthcare team believes in the patient’s ability to manage dialysis treatment at home
