Principal areas that require attention in the emerging centre include:
Both centres are well aligned and motivated to undertake this partnership. The supporting centre Liaison officer met the Liaison Officer from Emerging centre about 5 years ago at the World Congress of Nephrology in Vancouver. Since then, they have collaborated in the areas of clinical research, and as a result of the collaboration they have published two papers, a 3rd paper is in the final stages of acceptance. Furthermore, they also collaborated to obtain an ISN Clinical Research and Prevention grant. The Liaison Officer from the supporting centre has put together a team of experts on AKI from Canada who are supporting the project. To meet the above needs we intend to have short term visits of nephrologists from the emerging centre to the sister centre.
The visit will cover areas such as transplantation, tissue typing, peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis, interventional nephrology, renal pathology and research. Specific opportunities that will be made available to the Emerging centre free of charge will be:

This presentation was given by Vishal Vaidya, Associate Professor of Medicine and Head of Systems Toxicology for the Harvard Program in Theurapeutic Sciences. It was presented during the CRRT Conference 2015: "Updates in ICU Medicine: Controversies, Challenges and Solutions," held in San Diego from 17-20 February 2015.
In an educational program a complete and up-to-date Curriculum is essential. The Residents, Fellows, and Practicing Nephrologists rely on their mentors to train them in procedures necessary to provide successful dialysis access. However, since there are several ways to accomplish any goal, the trainees also need a Curriculum which summarizes literature to provide evidence regarding advantages and disadvantages of each technique. This Core Curriculum provides this summary for peritoneal dialysis catheter procedures, which are the sine qua non of a successful dialysis program.
The Curriculum represents a collaborative effort from Interventional Nephrologists in a wide variety of practices, from Universities to Private Hospitals to Access Centers. Each author is a recognized expert in the particular procedure or technique that they present.
