NxStage is here to support you.
To better assist you during the COVID-19 pandemic we have mobilized a series of virtual resources to continue to support you with both education and training for nurses and staff.
This is an important time to continue to educate patients about home therapies, and to encourage patients to advocate for their needs. Many providers have adapted their training policies and procedures to maximize safety for both patients and staff during home training, so you can continue to care for and train home patients while protecting yourself and your teams.
