This study assessed nephrology fellows' confidence and clinical experience with these therapies near the completion of their training. Researchers surveyed trainee attendees of 3 separate home dialysis-focused conferences. Overall, perceived preparedness was moderate for peritoneal dialysis and low for home hemodialysis.

This study suggests that redesign of nephrology fellowship training in home dialysis is warranted.
