Things to Know
Kidney diseases often go unnoticed for years. It takes a lot of empathy to explain the acute situation to patients and offer them courage and joy in life.
In the dialysis centre, we view doctors, nurses and patients as partners with different tasks. The patient’s shared responsibility is important to us.
Despite our expertise, we can not cure the disease. We can help, however, so that life can be filled with meaning.
This book for affected persons and their dependents presents the different dialysis procedures, explains their function and why they are necessary. It is also a guide on how to integrate the complex therapy into everyday life, so that it affects quality of life as little as possible.
