ASN recently released a five-part video series, “Improving Dialysis Rounds for Geriatric Patients,” produced by the ASN Geriatric Nephrology Advisory Group and made possible with support from the Association of Specialty Professors.

The publicly available, free video series, accessible online at http://www.asnrounds.org, reflects ASN’s dedication to providing resources related to geriatric care in response to increasing interest in individualizing care for geriatric patients. Each video covers critical aspects of care for aging patients, including patient assessment, dialysis care, recognition of physical and mental decline, quality-of-life issues, and sharing crucial decision-making information with patients and caretakers.

“The ASN Geriatric Nephrology Advisory Group and I believe these exceptional videos go a long way to providing the most optimal care for kidney patients,” said ASN President Bruce Molitoris, MD, FASN. ASN encourages all nephrology health professionals to watch the videos and share them with their networks of peers and trainees.
