Cannulation Camp

The National Kidney Foundation of Indiana and the Central Indiana Vascular Access Affinity Group is planning a Cannulation Camp on Thursday April 7, 2016 in the Ruth Lilly Learning Center at Riley Children’s Hospital. The goal of the camp is to further educate our participants on best practices with regard to cannulation of vascular access in dialysis patients, share new and innovative technologies in the field of vascular access including surgical and endovascular procedures, and discuss different options for vascular access and options for alternative access, such as peritoneal dialysis.
