Support of the home-dialysis patient
This chapter discusses patients undergoing home-dialysis and the support that is provided to them. This system began after the dialysis centres in the locales became too crowded, and soon family members and spouses of the patients were able to go through training to perform haemodialysis at home. This allowed even more patients access to this treatment. The discussion includes the selection process of the patients suited for home-dialysis, the training process, and the support these patients should be provided with once they receive this treatment from home.
