I hate to have had to create that title but … its true!
To me … there seems some apathy at the moment - real or imagined.
We are really trying to do something GOOD for you guys - it’s through a website called WiZIQ. It’s a way to try and bring real time education to dialysis patients … not to nurses, not to doctors, not to hangers-on … but to you! OK … we may expand (if successful) to the other groups - but for now? … its you!
I hope Dori will, in time, forgive me posting this this but … hey … let’s mobilize!
If there are any of you ‘out there’ reading this … we are trying to get something going here … something which has real potential to make a difference. If we can capture some good speakers (and we have several in mind … I am just the go-getter at the pointy end), people who can explain complex issues in simple ways - and I think we are on track to do that - then you are the beneficiaries.
If you havent signed up to WiZIQ … can I exhort you to do so.
Its easy. Ask Dori. Ask Richard Berkowitz. Ask Bill Peckham. Ask Beachy. Ask Jessie St Amour. And others …
And … if you have contacts outside HDC … other groups … that you think might get a buzz from learning new stuff - tell them too. Dori wont mind. They do (I think) need to at least ‘hook in’ through HDC …
When Dori reads this and ‘forgives’ my indiscretion for writing this, she will give you directions how to do it if you don’t already know.
I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet too much ( this is NOT an Agar-centric exercise) but - I really think you’ll find it useful.
You may want to catch up first on Part 1 of the 2 Part series (Solutes) at WiZIQ … again, Dori or Richard will tell you how to do this.
The session coming up on YOUR 22nd July (YOUR TUESDAY NIGHT) is on Fluids. The first part isn’t essential but would REALLY set the scene for Part 2. Its permanently there on WiZIQ so if you havent got a password, havent logged on, again, the ‘team above’ will help you there.
Please … support this. It has huge potential to be useful - but it will ONLY do so if you support it from the outset. Otherwise, it will fade and die - and I, for one, would find that very, very disheartening.
Just … get in there! Please.
The next session is coming up this week. Again … this is not an ‘ad’ for me … rather, its an ‘ad’ for you!
