Q&A with Corrine Gable - Home Hemodialysis Educator
Where do you work?
Kelowna General Hospital
How long have you been in renal?
Over 25 years
What brought you to renal?
I first worked on a medical floor for several years at the Charles Camsell Hospital in Edmonton. This hospital closed and I transferred to the Royal Alexandra Hospital, also in Edmonton. It was there that my renal experience began. The floor I worked on was a peritoneal dialysis/gastrointestinal floor. If you are thinking that this is an odd combination, I would agree with you. After a year and a half, my husband Pat got transferred to Kelowna. Moving to Kelowna was a no brainer. Kelowna was a beautiful growing city.
Starting off as casual at the Kelowna General Hospital, I worked on various units, but once the word got out that I had some renal experience the renal unit booked me in for shifts. This led me to getting trained for Hemodialysis. I continued to work casual for several years until opportunity knocked and the Home Hemodialysis Educator position came up. Taking this position I developed a passion for it, and have no regrets.
