This activity will discuss common symptoms associated with dialysis and will take the learner from the path of burden of disease to increased awareness of patient’s day-to-day issues living with chronic illness. The idea of how a “one-size fits all” approach for the management of dialysis patients is not something that can be continued, and a brief history of how the demographics of patients on dialysis has changed over time. This historical approach of advanced care planning will be reviewed as well as. Opportunities for clinicians to implement advanced care planning with their patient’s routine care will be reviewed.
