Patient Education AND RESOURCES

Karen Kimsey, Kidney Dialysis Staff Instructor for Treatment Options ClassSkagit Valley Kidney Center takes seriously the old adage that "knowledge is power." Our patients make better decisions about what is best for them if they have more information at their fingertips. Skagit Valley Kidney Center's strong patient education program offers the following programs and resources:

  • Skagit Valley Kidney Center uses "Explore Transplant" resources to help patients and their families understand the transplant process.
     
  • The Dial-Wyze Patient Newsletter keeps patients and their families up-to-date on what is going on in the kidney center and provides a wide array of educational resources and articles.
