Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division and Quality Insights Renal Network for a webinar on Dialysis in Disaster.
This webinar will address the role of the Access and Functional Needs (AFN) Planner at the NJ Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) in assisting County AFN Coordinators, dialysis providers and patients, and other stakeholders before, during and after disasters. An overview of NJOEM's Register Ready will be provided as well. The End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Network 3’s Regional Emergency Preparedness Coordinator will cover what dialysis is and how receiving treatment can be impacted by an emergency event. Learn from firsthand experiences and lessons learned during hurricanes Irma and Maria. Additional topics will include preparedness and planning considerations for dialysis patients, their families, emergency responders, and dialysis facility staff. Who should attend? The whole community – general public, families, organizations, NGOs, local, state, federal government and private sector. This event will include Live Captioning.
