When a child is in the hospital, parents can be overwhelmed by nurses and doctors rushing around, speaking medical jargon. Sometimes health care providers think they are clearly communicating, but don’t check to make sure you understand their instructions. If you are able to teach back the information in your own words, you can be confident you do understand.
The Our Journey™ with Peritoneal Dialysis app is designed to:
— Be used from the time of admission throughout hospitalization, to facilitate conversations
between families and the health care team.
— Help parents identify what they need to know before going home.
— Give parents a safe way to admit what they don’t know or understand, and ask questions.
— Cue families on what they need to teach back to or demonstrate for their nurse or doctor.
This gives the health care provider an opportunity to confirm information and skills and correct misunderstandings.
— Help families feel confident that they can safely care for their child at home after discharge
from the hospital, know the signs of possible problems, and know how to respond.
About The Emily Center at Phoenix Children’s Hospital:
Founded in 1990, the Center is named after Emily Anderson. Emily fought a rare form of leukemia for four years before losing her battle a few days before her seventh birthday.
Frustrated by the lack of easy to understand information about Emily’s illness, her parents founded The Emily Center so that families of sick children would always have access to pediatric health information that is accurate, easy to understand, and free of charge to Arizona’s families. http://www.emilycenter.org and on Twitter @emilycenter
The Our Journey™with Peritoneal Dialysis mobile app has been funded by a grant from Cox.

Facts About Chronic Kidney Disease
•Kidney disease is common, harmful, and treatable.
•26 million American have kidney disease – but most do not know they have it. Millions more are at increased risk.
•High risk groups include those with diabetes, hypertension, and a family history of kidney disease. African Americans, Hispanics, Asian or Pacific Islanders, Native Americans and seniors are also at increased risk.
•Early detection can slow the progression of kidney disease.
•Once kidneys fail, patients need dialysis or a transplant to survive.
The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families, and tens of millions of Americans at risk.
By supporting the National Kidney Foundation, you directly influence and positively impact the lives of those at risk for kidney disease, those living with chronic kidney disease, and those who care for and about them.

The Kidney Jigsaw game comes with 4 kidney themed jigsaw puzzles that promotes kidney awareness in all ages. Aside from kidney awareness it was also made in protest to proposed End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) cuts to kidney care, scheduled to go into effect January 1, 2014..
The whole idea behind this kidney hockey game is awareness, kidney community versus CMS .. keep the message alive and let others know about these cuts, let them know to call or contact their congressman, senators to prevent de-fundinding from end stage renal disease services.
