Who we are
One of the foremost missions of the International Society for Hemodialysis™ (ISHD) is to promote education and research in the field of hemodialysis (HD). Since its inception in 1999, ISHD and its flagship journal, Hemodialysis International, has addressed the science and clinical practice of hemodialysis, an important mode of therapy that in the past had been sorely overlooked in favor of other basic-science focused research.
As a testament to the importance of home HD, for more than a decade the society has been organizing 1-day preconference courses in home HD during the Annual Dialysis Conference, organized by the University of Missouri at Columbia. Although great strides have been made in recent years in hemodialysis research and training, there remains an obvious dearth of resources for home HD, for practitioners and patients alike.
