Henning Søndergaard in Copenhagen joins me for SEN Talk3. He describes a self-care dialysis unit that is patient-centered beyond what is usually proposed in the United States. I know of Hui Laulima o Hana Maui (here, here) which operates as a shared space for home dialyzors but the Copenhagen example is self care taken to a new level.
Søndergaard's self care unit allows people 24/7 access to dialysis, they can schedule treatment times over the internet and let themselves in with their own key card. Every other day dialysis, and incenter nocturnal dialysis are treatment options. Really it is on demand dialysis.
Søndergaard's two part article for Nephrology News & Issues is here.
