Home Dialyzors United announces its 4th Annual Meet Up & Conference, “This is Home”

…bringing together kidney patients, care partners and renal professionals.

This year’s conference, “This is Home”, will be in Orlando, Florida from Sunday, October 13 to Tuesday, October 15, 2013 and will be a gathering of kidney patients, care partners and renal professionals from across the USA where they will gain an abundance of the most up-to-date, life-changing home dialysis and kidney disease information.

This conference is a unique opportunity for both patients and health care providers to come together and engage in an exchange of real-life experiences in advocating for better dialysis for all kidney patients. Hear and learn from the experts; both the health care providers and the patients and experience the unique energy and inspiration that comes from attending a conference where you can connect with like-minded people committed to innovation and excellence in patient-centered dialysis care.

Featured is a wide range of cutting-edge programs including: new innovations in kidney disease and dialysis technology;

kidney health policy update on Medicare and the bundle; kidney patients becoming advocates; how home dialyzors and the medical team can work together for a better therapy; peritoneal and home hemodialysis best practices and infection control, preserving and prolonging renal function; dialyzors and care partners perspectives; developing an ideal home dialysis care model; emergency preparedness; and so much more to come.  Plus, renal professionals attending can qualify for CEU’s.

The presentations will be from some of the most prominent renal professionals, nephrologists and nurses and you can hear from kidney patients about real-life experiences on dialysis and how it can mean for a better quality of life. You will be able to meet with them informally throughout the event.

The 2013 Home Dialyzors United (HDU) Meet Up and Conference will hold an Awards Banquet, honoring those in the renal community. The Christopher R. Blagg Distinguished Achievement Award will be presented to a nephrologist for his contribution to the advancement of home dialysis and the Home Dialyzors United Trailblazer Award recognizes an outstanding individual or group whose ongoing efforts have contributed to improving home dialysis treatment and quality of life for patients and their families.  It is an excellent opportunity for patients and care partners, who are looking for alternatives to in-center treatment, to learn firsthand from home dialyzors and leading renal professionals about the improved quality of life which comes with home dialysis. It’s also an opportunity for dialysis nurses and other renal professionals to learn about the other side of dialysis, the one dialyzors and care partners live every day.

The low registration fees and discounted hotel rates make this conference one of the more affordable U.S. dialysis conferences.
