This conference will provide clinicians from all disciplines with the knowledge, information and practical tools to help manage those at risk of, or living with, kidney disease, in the community and hospital setting, and involve and engage people in their own care.

This will be an inspiring and interactive day, using a variety of media to stimulate and engage. Delivery will take the form of lectures, patient stories and discussion. A practical workbook will be available for delegates to take away.

Programme director: Dr Richard Fluck, Think Kidneys and the UK Renal Registry.

  • how recent technological advances are improving outcomes for patients with kidney disease
  • living with kidney disease – what it really means and the difference patient activation can make
