As patients are newly diagnosed with end stage renal disease, healthcare providers educate patients mainly on physical risk and benefits of treatment options regarding dialysis. What often isn’t covered are the psychosocial risks that occur with each option given to patients and their families. The presentation will explore psychosocial effects of different treatments through the stories of dialysis patients.
