David Harris is ISN President Elect and a nephrologist at Westmead Hospital and University of Sydney, Australia.
As a recent guest of Professor Khin Maung Htay at Yangon’s Thingangyun San Pya Hospital and Yangon Specialist Hospital, I was exposed to how snake bites are a major health concern in Myanmar, especially for kidney patients.
Detlef Schlondorff announced recently that he will be stepping down as Editor of Kidney International from the end of 2017. Under his leadership ISN’s flagship journal has continued to grow in impact and in appeal to its global readership.
Adeera Levin, Marcello Tonelli and David Harris represented ISN at a three-day workshop sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), which took place in April in Colombo and focused on the epidemic of chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu). This is afflicting a large number of agricultural workers in Sri Lanka, particularly in the North and Central provinces.
Members of our unit at Westmead Hospital, Sydney (Australia) have just returned from a four day-day visit to the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) in Karachi (India).
This presentation was given by David Harris, Chair of the ISN Education Committee. It was presented at the World Congress of Nephrology 2013 in Hong Kong under Session 5: Inflammatory Signaling in CKD (ISN thanks ASN for providing assistance with this session).
Updated and revised throughout, this second edition of Pocket Guide to Clinical Dialysis contains the latest information on the clinical care and management of chronic kidney disease through dialysis treatment. It is an ideal quick-reference guide for medical students, resident medical officers, junior advanced trainees in nephrology, nurses, and paramedical staff, providing practical and essential information about haemodialysis, its physiology and equipment used, chronic peritoneal dialysis, and acute dialysis. The book has been written by doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dietitians of the Western Sydney Renal Service, and their colleagues in other Australian renal units.
ISN Education is releasing 4 free chapters of this book, covering early CKD & maintenance dialysis preparation, cardiovascular risk and management, managing first HD treatment and assessing the adequacy of PD.
Congratulations to Detlef Schlondorff and his team at Kidney International (KI) for the continued success of ISN’s flagship journal. The 2013 impact factor for Kidney International has risen by almost 10% on last year to 8.520.
This webinar will focus on when to initiate dialysis for end stage kidney disease; lessons from the IDEAL trial.
For several years the Asian Pacific Society of nephrology (APSN) has partnered with ISN to offer ISN-APSN Fellowships. The Executive Committee of APSN recognizes the importance of other programs within ISN Global Outreach Programs (GO) and so has offered to partner with ISN from 2013 in its other GO programs as well: CME, Education Ambassador, Research & Prevention, Sister Renal Centre. These sorts of partnerships make sense because the mission of ISN and APSN (and other regional societies) are closely aligned, unnecessary duplication can be avoided and valuable resources can be stretched further. It is a good model for other regional and national societies to consider!
This was presented during ISN’s Forefronts Symposium 2012 taking place in Melbourne from October 4-7, 2012. The Forefronts 2012 in Melbourne brought together leading nephrologists and active investigators around the theme Tubulointerstitial Disease in Diabetic Nephropathy.
