I myself help with our Education Department to help train new hired Dialysis Technicians. My role is an Ambassador for our Region, and I’m a Preceptor for our clinic. “ Wow Dwelyn!” What does an Ambassador do and Perception ?”,What is that? “ Well as an Ambassador , I’m mainly here for guidance and moral support. Sort of like a liaison to individuals in need. For example, this type of profession requires a lot of guidance and coaching. Each team member that’s hired, is placed with a Preceptor/ Trainer who shows them the ropes of their clinic or the way a common dialysis treatment floor is run.

My job is to play Devil’s Advocate and provide a non-biased opinion while providing undivided attention towards their needs of venting or coping with this job. “ Sheesh Man , that sounds steady!” AW replies. “ Lol , well it probably does , but with my years of experience I’ve learned to get a hold of it in a manner to project onto others positively. And I’m still learning also. Remember we talked about CVC / Graft / Fistula care ?
