Your Child & Chronic Kidney Disease - Home and school visits

Home and school visits cartoon

Close contact with both the family and school is maintained. It helps if teachers have some understanding of your child’s care. Visits may be organised whenever there are changes in treatment or if problems should arise.

Contact is maintained, and there is always someone from the unit for you to contact. In some units the community paediatric sister may also visit to help with home nursing problems.
