Contenuto Position Statements on tackling the dialysis burden 1-The global increase in end stage renal failure patients poses significant stresses on healthcare systems around the world. 2-The current world wide provision of the majority of renal replacement therapy via in-centre hemodialysis (HD) is costly. The provision of home based therapies, as either Home HD or peritoneal dialysis (PD), is less costly than in-centre HD, in most parts of the world. 3-Home therapies provide a level of empowerment to patients that impact positively on their patient outcome and quality of life. 4-Proactive pre-dialysis patient education on the availability of dialysis modalities including in-centre hemodialysis, home based hemodialysis, and home based peritoneal dialysis programmes (CAPD and Automated PD) should be enhanced in order to improve patient choice regarding their dialysis regimen. 5-The dialysis community should engage with local governments and Health Authorities to discuss the planning and provision of dialysis modalities with a view to providing the most cost effective therapies. 6-Local governments and Health Authorities should actively plan the increase use of home dialysis modalites in order to maximize health care resources for treating end stage renal disease patients.
