Welcome to the Peritoneal Dialysis Committee website!

The Committee on Peritoneal Dialysis created the “Primer on Peritoneal Dialysis” (previously called the PD Summit) to set the foundation on the basic knowledge of peritoneal dialysis.  This special course is specifically organized for Nephrologists and their potential PD nurses and prepares them on creating their own PD program and setting up a PD center in their areas of practice.  The committee was able to conduct a total of six (6) runs since this was launched in February 2018.  The pandemic may have interrupted this biannual conference, but this allowed us to restructure, update and create new training modules.

By 2022, the Primer on Peritoneal Dialysis is reformatted into a blended learning tool with three (3) months of on-demand access to the recorded training modules.  For our pilot run, this will be open to all Nephrology Fellowship Training Institutions – adult and pediatric Nephrology fellows-in-training, three (3) representatives from the training core of each participating institution, and three (3) potential PD nurses from each institution.  Towards the end of the 3-month access, there will be a scheduled live virtual supplemental activity on PD prescription writing and PD peritonitis management, and a live Question and Answer (Q&A) session via Zoom platform.  This will culminate with an online evaluation exam after the Q&A session.  The virtual skills demonstration and return demo on manual (CAPD) exchange will be conducted by the PD Nurses of Baxter and Fresenius.

Each training institution will be assigned a schedule for this activity.   The system-specific training materials will be sent to them by the PD provider prior to the scheduled demonstration.

Participants who completed the training modules attended the supplemental activity and Q&A session passed the evaluation exam, and performed the return demonstration will be given the certificate of attendance with the corresponding CPD Units.
