NEPHROLOGY E-MAIL DIALYSIS DISCUSSION GROUP in cooperation with the National Kidney Foundation's cyberNephrologyTM Center

Welcome to MDdialysis, an e-mail discussion group for nephrologists actively managing dialysis patients or directing and supervising dialysis facilities and surgeons performing A-V access procedures. I am Steve Fadem, moderator.

With the development of physician guidelines comes physician accountability. The role of the medical director and the dialysis physician is being sharply defined by HFCA, the corporate ownership of dialysis facilities, payors and enlightened patients.

This list will offer you three things:

  1. Information:
    Through your participation in this discussion group you should gain a great deal of insight into many timely issues. You should be able to stay up with new guideline initiatives and compliance issues. You will learn what kinds of concerns HCFA and Insurance payors have. This site should compliment clinical discussion groups like
    Nephrol , a product of NKF's cyberNephrology.
  2. Interaction
    - The dialogues with colleagues will undoubtedly lead to new ideas, and better ways to address management and clinical issues.
  3. Guidance

    Through discussion with colleagues one can inquire how to implement the k/DOQI guidelines, set up a quality improvement program, write a therapy protocol, or set up a vascular access management team.

National Kidney Foundation, and other websites in addition to this one have been developed in cooperation with the NKF cyberNephrology TM Center

These important resources will help you to feel comfortable using the expansive resources of the Internet to meet the needs of your practice or your position.

We look forward to your participation in our discussions!
