Hospital de Manises, Skane University Hospital, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki have undertaken peer-to-peer training courses during the last weeks before summer holidays.

The aim is to give tips to healthcare providers to promote healthy behaviors among patients undertaking hemodialysis. Ambassadors that include nephrologists, nurses, and physiotherapists, are responsible for giving tips to their partners.

The aim is that subjects undertaking hemodialysis get:

  • The best nutritional habits
  • Increase their physical activity level
  • Improve their cognitive state
  • Increase their psychological wellbeing

The courses are undertaken at the dialysis units during the clinical practice.
