Making Dialysis Safer for Patients: Tools to Prevent Infections in Hemodialysis
This webinar will present resources for preventing infections in the hemodialysis setting and will focus on increasing the use and visibility of CDC evidence-based practices. Bloodstream infections are a dangerous complication of dialysis. Nurses, medical providers, technicians and others who work in dialysis facilities face a difficult task of managing complex conditions affecting their patients while simultaneously focusing on reducing the risk of infection for these at-risk individuals. In this webinar, we will discuss the burden of bloodstream infections in hemodialysis, present the Core Interventions for Bloodstream Infection Prevention in the dialysis setting, discuss the value of auditing in dialysis facilities using CDC tools and resources, and discuss benefits of becoming a member of the Making Dialysis Safer for Patients Coalition.
