ASDIN Core Curriculum for PD Catheter Procedures – 3 free chapters

In an educational program a complete and up-to-date Curriculum is essential. The Residents, Fellows, and Practicing Nephrologists rely on their mentors to train them in procedures necessary to provide successful dialysis access. However, since there are several ways to accomplish any goal, the trainees also need a Curriculum which summarizes literature to provide evidence regarding advantages and disadvantages of each technique. This Core Curriculum provides this summary for peritoneal dialysis catheter procedures, which are the sine qua non of a successful dialysis program.

The Curriculum represents a collaborative effort from Interventional Nephrologists in a wide variety of practices, from Universities to Private Hospitals to Access Centers. Each author is a recognized expert in the particular procedure or technique that they present.
