General Sessions

Ready to grow your dialysis career? DTX22 is where you can get solid help to climb your career ladder in dialysis.

Wednesday

We start on Wednesday by looking at Improving your workplace culture with Renee Thompson, DNP, RN, CSP, CEO & Founder, Healthy Workforce Institute®. Renee will continue with a deep dive later in the day during our Professional Development session track to talk about how YOU can improve YOUR workplace culture.

Next, Adrian Amedia, Executive Vice President, Independent Dialysis Group, is a member of the Renal Healthcare Association board of directors - he will be discussing 20% by 2025 - What does this mean to YOU?

We are looking at the Expectations for the future of technicians in dialysis with our Chief Nursing Officer panel, including Kathleen Belmonte, Fresenius Medical Care, Tracey Givens, Satellite Healthcare, and Tina Livaudais, DaVita’s new CNO.

Did you ever talk to someone, only to see your words go in one ear and out the other?  Our session on How to Effectively Document by Karen Gaietto PhD, RN, CNN, Clinical Content Senior Manager, DaVita Inc. will help you make sure you not only hear the important things in your unit, but that you know how to accurately document them for future reference.

Thursday

Our Thursday morning general sessions begin with Mandy Tilton, Chief Nursing Officer, Bayada Home Health Care, on Having Difficult Conversations. Mandy is our speaker for her deep dive session in Professional Development on How to Make YOUR Voice Heard.

Next, we have Inventory Control – The Key to the Financial Health of Your Facility presented by Zach Zapinksi, CDI. This represents a fascinating career path for which dialysis technicians are well suited. Later Thursday afternoon we have Bruce Fife, RPC on Inventory Control – How to Nourish YOUR Financial Success.

Our Thursday general sessions conclude with our Chief Technical Officer panel on What does the future hold? Hear what Ted Kazparek, Senior Director to Technical Operations, DaVita; Mark Gray, Vice President of Technical Services; and Heather Paradis, National Director of Biomedical Services, CDI Health see coming to your clinics soon.

Friday

Our concluding session begins with the very popular Dialysis Patient / Family Point of View. Each year, we learn new insights from articulate dialysis patients and their involved family caregivers. This year we welcome Shelley Renn, Director of Meetings, American Society of Human Genetics, who had acute renal failure.  We also welcome back Sam and Lacye Trevino, who traded the responsibilities of care giver and receiver when Lacye needed acute dialysis as a result of dealing with GBS.

Felicia Speed, VP of Social Work for Fresenius, will talk about Appropriate Patient Boundaries. We end the conference with a lot of Resources you can use after DTX22 – Will Macias, NANT President; Clarica Douglas Ajayi, Immediate Past President; and Lisa Hauf, Director of Technical Services, DaVita will make sure you won’t leave DTX22 empty-handed.
