Fifteen RVM employees improve patient-centered care knowledge at NKF Spring meeting

Mar 31, 2015

NKF-Spring-2015-meeting_story.jpgTexas bluebonnets are in bloom and RVM social workers are blooming in their knowledge about chronic kidney disease care.  Fifteen RVM employees attended the National Kidney Foundation Spring Clinical Meeting in Grapevine, Texas from March 25 - 29 to learn about new and evolving concepts related to kidney disease through courses, workshops and symposia.

The meeting took place at the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, TX just Northwest of Dallas.  RVM social workers and dietitians learned methods for improving patient outcomes, weight management interventions, and engaging effectively with your patients. 

NKF-Spring-2015-meeting_02-story.jpgRV Care Partner Farzeen Sukheswalla attended several sessions. " It was wonderful connecting with colleagues and sharing ideas to improve the lives of our patients.  The most inspirational session for me was listening to a former hemodialysis patient's life story and his experience with patient-centered care," said Sukheswalla.

"My favorite sessions were with Sam Trevino, a former dialysis patient who received a kidney transplant, and Charlonda Thrower, LMSW.  Mr. Trevino led a heartfelt session on the topic of The Patient as Part of the Multidisciplinary Team.  His presentation had the audience “oo-ing,” “aww-ing,” crying, and laughing.  Mrs. Thrower’s session onGuiding Hispanics and African Americans Towards Transplant and Home Modalities was also equally thought provoking.  I am very grateful that I was able to attend this conference as it has gifted me with an extra dose of enthusiasm to continue our mission of providing patient-centered care," said Social Worker Irine Abraham.
