Green Dialysis

 

Dialysis is a resource-hungry medical therapy … in particular, the volumes of water, the demand for power, and the mountains of generated plastic waste that are central to its’ delivery. This applies, whether dialysis is delivered in a facility (= 65% of all ANZ dialysis) , or in the home (= 35% of all ANZ dialysis).

This site attempts to address these issues.

While this site originally arose from the ‘green experience’ of the renal service at Barwon Health in Geelong, Victoria, it is now accruing a national flavour with the support of key national renal and dialysis bodies … the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology, the Renal Society of Australasia, Kidney Health Australia, and Kidney Health New Zealand.

We encourage you to delve into the site … and ‘turn your dialysis green’.
