Kidney Transplantation Early Program at ASN's Kidney Week 2014
November 11 – 12, 2014
Join the American Society of Nephrology, in cooperation with the American Society of Transplantation, for the Kidney Transplantation Early Program prior to the start of Kidney Week 2014.
From ASN's website: "In recent years, there have been important advances in the field of kidney transplantation that will impact the care of the kidney transplant recipient. In particular, new allocation policies, changes in donor management (including living donor assessment and follow-up), novel immunosuppression strategies, and advances in the understanding of the causes of acute and chronic graft injury will directly influence nephrology practice both immediately and in the coming era.
This program provides an interactive, case-based overview of these and other exciting advances in kidney transplantation, with a focus upon specific populations, complications, and ethical issues. Nephrologists with an interest in transplantation, transplant physicians, and trainees in the nephrology are encouraged to attend this program."
