Hemodialysis course is designed to prepare students with a foundation in kidney physiology, nephrological disease, principles of dialysis. You will gain the knowledge necessary to provide safe and effective care to the individual/client undergoing hemodialysis treatment. Also learn how to deliver competent, safe and ethical care to those at risk for developing, or affected by, the disease and/or insufficiency.
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
- Differentiate between normal and abnormal anatomy and function of the kidney and renal system and related pathophysiology to determine physiological needs and care priorities.
- Demonstrate knowledge of dialysis therapies such as the mechanisms of fluid delivery, machine mechanics and membrane physiology as they relate to hemodialysis
- Demonstrate knowledge of the etiology, pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, investigation, treatment including acute and chronic kidney disorders
- Perform a complete assessment of a patient presenting with a suspected nephrological , renal disease or with a renal transplant
Our experienced faculty and dedicated staff dedicated will assist student throughout the entire workshop including with tutoring and mentoring.
