    Scottish Renal Association/Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh Joint Symposium

    Friday 12 September 2014

    At Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh

    Despite a fall in the incidence of established renal failure, the prevalence continues to rise. Making good clinical decisions for patients with established renal failure is challenging due to associated co-morbidity, paucity of clinical trial evidence, expense of therapies and ethical considerations. This symposium will explore some of these challenging clinical decisions through a programme of interactive case presentations, lectures and formal debate by recognised experts in the field.

    This joint symposium is aimed at clinicians in multidisciplinary teams who are involved in the management of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dieticians.

    Medical and nursing abstracts for oral presentation are sought and should be submitted by 5pm, Friday 1 August 2014.

    Full details on programme, registration and abstract submission from: http://bit.ly/1icwRZP

    (early bird discount deadline Thursday 14 August 2014)

    Arrival of Assisted Peritoneal Dialysis: Time to change dialysis pathways for older patients?

    The meeting focuses on the dialysis pathways for frail older patients and integration of their care with services for older patients in the community. The aims of the meeting are to review the role of assisted PD as an alternative dialysis modality for these patients, to consider different models of delivering assisted PD and to discuss the pros and cons of developing the French model of use of assisted PD rather than default haemodialysis. We have involved renal and elderly care clinicians as well as considering the commissioner viewpoint.

    You can contact Edwina Brown directly e.a.brown@imperial.ac.uk with any ideas or comments abut the meeting.
