Renal conditions: Moving on up together!
Working together to manage paediatric onset renal conditions moving into adult services
Wednesday 25th January 2017
Heartbeat Suite, Southampton General Hospital
We are inviting you to a free educational day for the paediatric and adult MDT involved in looking after young people with kidney disease. The day is also open to patients and carers. The day will cover some of the more complex renal conditions moving to adult services.
Advances in medical care have led to the many more paediatric kidney patients surviving into adulthood with conditions that not so long ago would probably have been fatal in childhood. Whilst clearly very good news it can lead to a daunting experience for the MDT as they provide care for patients with conditions with which they are unfamiliar. This is in addition to the well documented challenges that the patient and family face as they move into adult care.
The study day will be an opportunity to review some of these renal conditions, share examples of good practice and resources that are working across the country and identify areas that require additional resource development.
If you would like to present a case study/resource please send a brief summary to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5th January 2017.
The style of the meeting will be informal, dynamic and interactive with plenty of time for discussion.
