    Arrival of Assisted Peritoneal Dialysis: Time to change dialysis pathways for older patients?

    The meeting focuses on the dialysis pathways for frail older patients and integration of their care with services for older patients in the community. The aims of the meeting are to review the role of assisted PD as an alternative dialysis modality for these patients, to consider different models of delivering assisted PD and to discuss the pros and cons of developing the French model of use of assisted PD rather than default haemodialysis. We have involved renal and elderly care clinicians as well as considering the commissioner viewpoint.

    You can contact Edwina Brown directly e.a.brown@imperial.ac.uk with any ideas or comments abut the meeting.
