A case study of an elderly PD patient with severe tremors who wanted to continue with home therapy
By Dr. Faiza Brunner MD, Peripal AG
This case study highlights a key recommendation of the ISPD Practice Guidelines in 2020 which states that PD should be prescribed using shared decision-making between the person doing PD and the care team.
 
The aim is to establish realistic care goals that:
  1. maintain quality of life for the person doing PD as much as possible by enabling them to meet their life goals,
  2. minimize symptoms and treatment burden while
  3. ensuring high-quality care is provided. (Ref 3)
