Podcast: Patient-Centered Care for Dialysis Patients
In the dialysis industry, patients frequently perceive that they are all receiving the same “cookie-cutter care.” It is important for health care professionals to address this perception and focus on factors that are important to each patient: Most patients would like to reduce hospital admissions, but what are the factors specific to the individual? Traveling? Staying at home? More time with family?
Listen to this podcast, in which Francesca Tentori, MD, reviews the current state of care in the dialysis industry, the challenges involved with providing patient-centered care, related research and the future of patient-centered care.
