Basic course Administration and Planning

This course has been designed for anyone who carries out an administrative or planning role in a dialysis unit, and who wishes to develop the necessary skills to work with the Diamant software application.

In this basic-level course participants will learn how to enter new patient data into the system and how to call-up any required administrative, planning or dialysis treatment data linked to any particular patient. The course participants will be provided with a PC/laptop onsite, so that they can practice and interactively emulate the exercises whilst they are being explained to them. During the course, the participants will be given time to fulfil practical tasks after the theory behind each subject has been explored. The course will be concluded with casuistry. This course is relevant to present-day practices within a dialysis unit.
