We all know that home therapies are the ideal solution for chronic illnesses. So why do most people dialyze incenter at the thousands of dialysis centers across the United States? What are the perceived and real challenges that patients and healthcare providers face in utilizing care in the comfort of Home? How has COVID impacted the outlook for patients with ESRD? Richard Cabrera has been addressing these questions personally and professionally for over 25 years. His role as Senior Clinical Consultant at one of the world’s largest dialysis organizations has given him a broad perspective on just how challenging Home is. Learn from him how to support, encourage, and empower your patients to understand the home intricacies better.
It was 1995 when I first ventured into a dialysis clinic in Arizona and first became amazed by the dialysis process. My first role at that clinic was as a patient care technician, and it was a wonderful experience. Over the years, I have been able to work in patient care, bio-med, home therapies, and the vascular center. I have also been able to participate and present with organizations, including NANT and NKF. After working as a patient care technician, I continued my education to become an RN and a Nurse Practitioner. Currently, I practice in California rounding in outpatient dialysis centers. I also seek ways to stay involved and contribute to others in our nephrology community through education, compliance audits, and consulting clinics on how to better care for their patients. I hope to eventually have a small practice and continue to find ways to grow and contribute through education and quality care. Quote: "Don't look back; you’re not going that way!" ~ Mary Engelbreit
