Information Sessions


Kidney information sessions designed for people with renal disease and their family and friends are held at Canberra Hospital four times a year. You can talk to people who have had similar experiences and hear about the adjustments they have made in regard to work, life and leisure. The atmosphere will be relaxed and you can ask questions and join in the discussion, if you feel comfortable. Patients and families will have the opportunity to understand the changes that will affect their health and consider what choices need to be made.

The program will cover:

  • what your kidneys do,
  • understanding your blood tests,
  • treatment choices you need to make,
  • how to improve your kidney function through diet, and
  • insights from patients who are current haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and transplant patients in an informal discussion.

Should you be interested in attending one of these sessions, please contact Megan Hughes, Chronic Kidney Disease Nurse, Canberra Hospital on 6174 5090.
