Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Treatment Education

Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Treatment

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Education for patients with late stage kidney disease

There's a lot of information to absorb when it comes to chronic kidney disease, treatment options, and dialysis. Baxter's CKD Education is meant to help you through the process using a variety of media, illustrations and supporting text that allows you to understand your condition and the role you play in the process. You can also request a copy of our education video "Life Choices. Treatment Options." through your doctor or nurse. You can view a preview of the video at http://www.youtube.com/user/renalinfo Baxter's CKD Education program is a simple, consistent, thoughtful approach that will help you transition smoothly through therapy choice, dialysis initiation and long-term management.
