How to Have a Good Future with Kidney Disease

A patient-centered CKD education series in 6 parts

ballBackground

The non-profit Medical Education Institute, Inc., developed the How to Have a Good Future with Kidney Disease toolkit and videos so any renal professional can educate patients. Ideally, we want people with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to slow progression of their illness. If that is not possible, they need to choose a treatment option that will suit their preferred lifestyle—and make a safe transition to that option. To succeed, education is key. This slide series can help you educate people from stage 3 CKD through end-stage renal disease, one-on-one or in groups. The slides can be used for MIPPA purposes. No registration is needed to download and use the FREE kit or to view the videos. No outside funding supported development of this series.

These presentations cover the following topics:Tidal Wave

  1. Coming to Terms
  2. Kidneys and Kidney Disease
  3. Slowing Kidney Disease
  4. Kidney Transplant
  5. Dialysis and Your Lifestyle
  6. Your Money and Your Life

Presentations on this series

This recorded session, entitled A New Approach to CKD Education: How to Have a Good Future with Kidney Disease from the ANNA National Symposium, 2011 discusses how a goal for chronic kidney disease (CKD) education is to develop "expert patients." This session looks at the benefits of that goal and how that goal is being realized. Five tasks that are associated with developing patient self-management are also included. Ways to support patient autonomy wraps up this discussion of CKD education. Get it here.
