For many people living with end-stage kidney disease, dialysis is a life-long treatment. In Canada, dialysis is most often offered in a clinical setting and managed by a health care provider. However, several options for having dialysis at home without the assistance of a health care professional are also available. Join us in person or online as we discuss the evidence on home-based dialysis options current clinical practice in Canada, issues, considerations, and experiences. We will hear from patient, clinical, and expert speakers.
