Understanding the End Stage Renal Disease Treatment Choices (ETC) Model (Webinar)

March 8, 2022 (7:00 pm ET)
Host/Sponsor: American Nephrology Nurses Association Administration Specialty Practice Network (SPN)
Contact Hours: 1.0

The ETC Model is intended to encourage greater use of home dialysis and kidney transplants for Medicare beneficiaries with ESRD, while reducing Medicare expenditures and preserving or enhancing the quality of care furnished to beneficiaries with ESRD. Both modalities have support among health are providers and patients as preferable alternatives to in-center hemodialysis but have been used less than in other developed nations. The ETC Model began on January 1, 2021, and applies to approximately 30% of facilities across the United States. Aimed at staff nurses and patient care technicians working in the in-center hemodialysis arena, this webinar will break down the goals of the ETC Model and address the roles and responsibilities of in-center staff.

The webinar is free. Contact hours will be available in the ANNA Online Library; processing fees apply: ANNA Members $10, Standard $20.
