ASDIN ASSOCIATE PROGRAM
Sunday, February 17 • 9:00 am - 12:20 pm

ASSOCIATE PROGRAM CHAIRS:
DEBORAH BROUWER-MAIER, RNC, CNN & FOREST RAWLS, JR., CCHT-A, FNKF

The focus in dialysis access care is shifting to provide individualized patient-centered care. The goal is to provide the right access for each patient and then maintain the access with right interventions at the right times to ensure the patient has a functional access over their entire lifespan with CKD. KDOQI Vascular Guideline Workgroup has determined this to be the new direction. The Associate Program is shifting focus to meet this new overall goal. The access center is one point of care and must collaborate with other points of care such as the dialysis center, surgeon’s office, or hospital. The topics covered in our Associate Program will have this broader focus and transcend a single point of care. The shared skills such as the access examination (One Minute Check) and access planning will be demonstrated and tools for use after will be shared. The program will also include hands-on for cannulation and catheter care to increase the understanding of how the accesses are used for the hemodialysis treatments. Radiation safety will focus on the increased exposure patients receive as over the lifespan for various dialysis accesses. Access center staff exposure will be included as it is critical in keeping the patient exposure limited as well.
