IDEAS Conference August 18-20 in Seattle
Web site and agenda. Article from Healio. Twitter: #IDEAS2019,  #IDEASsymposium and #TransformDialysis.

Editor's note: I would ask why there are no renal rehabilitation programs in the U.S.  Why is the word "rehabilitation" never mentioned on the IDEAS conference web site or in its agenda? Do technology improvements provide holistic care for dialysis patients?

It seems to me that the government and the nephrology establishement is throwing a lot of money and effort at a problem without first defining what is needed for dialysis patient re/habilitation.
