The first Shared Haemodialysis Care Course began in September 2011, designed by Renal Matrons Melinda Howard from York and Christine Stubbs from Sheffield. It was funded by the Health Foundation and NHS Kidney Care to change relationships between Patients and Health care staff. It has since been funded through a regional innovation grant and currently by Kidney Care UK (formally the British Kidney Patients Associated BKPA)

Aims of the Course

Demonstrate the benefits for both patients and staff of Shared Haemodialysis Care 

 Equip staff with the understanding, practical support and motivation to change or enhance their current ways of working to promote a shared care environment

Provide a framework within which practice can be tailored to individual units

Facilitate a network providing ongoing support, encouragement, professional development and sharing of effective practice

Course Format

  • 4 day course over a period of 5-6 months
  • A gap of two weeks between the first two study days
  • The 4th study day is planned 4 months later. This is a called the Review day and patients and their partners are also invited
  • Cohort groups of  around 16 delegates

We welcome any grade or member of staff that works directly with Haemodialysis patients

"I have learned something about myself as well as how to help patients to do shared care"
