Yolŋu Matha (Yolngu Matha) with English subtitles
This DVD explores the process of Peritoneal Dialysis. It will be a useful tool for patients receiving Peritoneal Dialysis to understand how to undertake it, how the dialysis works and why it is important for their ongoing health.
This method of dialysis allows some Aboriginal patients to return to their homelands by continuing dialysis treatment without the aid of a haemodialysis machine. Returning home means that elders can pass on vital knowledge to younger generations. As such, the DVD can also be used with patients who are making decisions about the benefits of haemodialysis versus peritoneal dialysis.
