ISN and the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) Extend Partnership

The ISN and the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) have agreed to extend and formalize their existing partnership to include collaboration on a number of ISN programs and activities, demonstrating a mutual commitment to the global advancement of pediatric nephrology.

This partnership seeks to increase and strengthen the links between both societies through the ISN-IPNA Fellowships and the ISN’s Sister Renal Centers (SRC) Program. The next application deadline for the Fellowship and the Sister Renal Centers Program is October 1.

Pediatric representation on the ISN Regional Boards will help ensure that pediatric nephrology-specific issues can be shared with ISN leadership so that the ISN-IPNA collaboration is able to enhance kidney care for children around the globe.

Through this collaboration, all IPNA members will now receive full access to ISN’s Academy portal to explore over 8000 hours of educational with selected content in 7 languages.

In addition, both organizations will jointly organize up to 3 webinars per year and develop new e-learning materials to expand and improve the quality and quantity of online educational content available on pediatric nephrology.

ISN President, Vivek Jha explains: “Both ISN and IPNA are committed to building the capacity of healthcare professionals. Ultimately, this is to improve patient care – especially in areas where care is needed most through education and training.

Bradley Warady, IPNA Treasurer, comments “It is very rewarding to see something so positive for the nephrology community arise in the setting of the pandemic and all of the associated unfortunate outcomes.”
