May 24-26 Porto
Coordinator: Anabela Rodrigues, MD, PhD
Organization: Portuguese Nephrology Society and Nephrology Department CHP-Hospital Santo Antonio
12 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME)
Endorsed by International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD)
Educational objectives: debates, conferences and interactive discussions based on both theoretic and clinical PD concepts, observation and training sessions on PD procedures, up-date course on new investigational and clinical aspects of PD.
Event: Annual meeting, aimed to provide timely, comprehensive, and thorough update in the field of peritoneal dialysis, for the practicing nephrologists, trainees with previous PD exposition, or clinicians working with uremic patients. We welcome pediatric nephrologists, internists, and general practitioners. New themes are annually proposed to attract both new and recurrent participants. It is a lively experience demonstrating that PD is on the move.
This is the 10th Edition of the event.
In spite of the international relevance of Peritoneal Dialysis as an efficient renal replacement therapy there is still a shortage of patient and doctors’ exposition and education in this field. It is expected that, as a result of this educational process, learners will increase their knowledge on how to deal with patients under peritoneal dialysis and how to promote the modality. Challenging clinical issues are presented and debated.
These objectives are aligned with the investment of Portuguese Nephrology Society to increase Peritoneal Dialysis penetration, to serve the patients, disseminate knowledge and promote quality in nephrology clinical practice.
