Title: FREE HDC Webinar: Treatment Options & Informed Consent
Post by: M3Riddler on August 12, 2009, 09:43:32 PM

Please join us for the next FREE Home Dialysis Central Webinar! To make a truly informed choice about a treatment option, you need information. Dr. Robert Lockridge, from Lynchburg, VA, will guide us in a discussion about dialysis options and informed consent. He wants to hear from you! We're setting this up as a 90-minute session, because we think there's a lot to talk about.

Dr. Lockridge is one of the most renown nephrologist on the subject. Informed consent is a legal condition whereby a person can be said to have given consent based upon a clear appreciation and understanding of the facts, implications and future consequences of an action. In terms of kidney failure Informed Consent is the process where patient and physician work together to make the best decision regarding treatment. Instead of the nephrologistr basically making the important life decisions and setting up the treatments, they talk about all of the possible modalities with the patient learning the differences, especially regarding survivability. In cases where an individual is provided insufficient information to form a reasoned decision, serious ethical issues arise.
