Barriers and Tips To Overcome Them

What barriers have you encountered starting and keeping a home hemodialysis program running that you have overcome and how did you overcome them? :?:

What do you think is the best approach to use to convince doctors and nurses to consider and refer patients for home hemodialysis?
