Dialysis services, like many services within the healthcare setting, are resource-intensive, using water, energy and a range of consumables, and generating waste.
A number of initiatives have been implemented by health services to reduce resource use in dialysis and to increase sustainability within dialysis services. These initiatives generally relate to water use, energy use and waste management.
The guide Sustainability in healthcare: dialysis services has been prepared to help health services and renal networks link to existing sustainability programs applicable to dialysis services.
As more projects are implemented within dialysis services, case studies will be prepared and made available through this website.
Read about staff-driven sustainability initiatives in a Melbourne Health dialysis centre.
Health services that wish to provide case study information should send details of the project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
