Self-Care Dialysis Partnership
Self-care dialysis gives medically stable patients more independence in their treatments. They may not be able to, or are not interested in performing treatments at home. Humber River Hospital partners with the Sheppard and Sussex Centre Self Care Dialysis Units to provide this service to our community.
Treatments are provided at these self-care dialysis centres with the support of a registered nurse, and patients receive one-on-one training to learn how to address situations which may arise during their dialysis treatments. Active participation by the patient in their own dialysis treatment fosters independence and control, thereby providing a greater sense of well-being.
