Debunking 5 Common Myths Around Peritoneal Dialysis

Recent policymaking and an increased awareness around patient-centric care are resulting in a renewed interest in home-dialysis as a treatment option for kidney failure. Peritoneal dialysis is a great option to facilitate the freedom of home renal replacement therapy. Despite the long-history of this treatment modality as a viable option for many patients, its use remains relatively low in comparison to in-center hemodialysis. Join us for this informative webinar as renowned home dialysis experts Dr Ankur Shah and Dr Natasha Dave review and counter common perceived barriers to utilizing peritoneal dialysis in various populations.

*Drs Natasha Dave and Ankur Shah are paid consultants of Otsuka Pharmaceutical & Commercialization, Inc. (OPDC). Dr Aaron Emmel is an employee of OPDC.
