Traditionally, dialysis education has been geared towards adults with few resources available for parents and patients when faced with the frightening reality of pediatric dialysis. Through the generosity of DCI’s 40 Acts of Service project, Children’s Dialysis Clinic of Central Texas produced an educational video entitled “A Day with Darby, Living Life on Dialysis”. Our video features Darby, a certified pet therapy border collie as the narrator teaching the audience about kidney disease and the different dialysis modalities available for kids. Also featured are pediatric dialysis patients from our clinic talking about dialysis and how they all truly live life to the fullest while undergoing dialysis treatments.
On July 11th, 2011 at the Dell Children’s Medical Center, our video debuted to a full audience of patients, parents, family members, physicians, nurses, child life specialists, pet owners and many others. Patients enjoyed seeing themselves on the big screen and the video received rave reviews from the audience.
“A Day with Darby – Living Life on Dialysis” will be sent to pediatric dialysis units across the United States to share with patients, families and professionals. A Spanish version is also available. The production of this video was a labor of love and commitment to our smallest dialysis patients.
