New “Grand Rounds in Pediatric Nephrology” ProgramCatherine de Tiège
The ISN, in partnership with the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), is developing a case-based online teaching program in pediatric nephrology, “Grand Rounds in Pediatric Nephrology,” to support the training needs of active Sister Renal Centers (SRC) pairs and other centers in LMICs.
Four Grand Round sessions will be broadcast throughout 2021. Additional editions may be scheduled to meet growing need.
The content will be determined by the emerging centers according to their training needs and will include discussion and didactic elements from senior experts. Fellows from ISN and IPNA SRCs will present cases, and trainees from pediatric nephrology centers in all LMICs will be invited to join.
The first such Grand Round session, “Management of Renal Bone Disease,” will be presented by Ruskshana Shroff from Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK, and Sukanya Govindan, Mehta Multispeciality Hospitals, Chennai, India, on Friday, April 30 at 3 p.m. CEST.
This initiative was developed in response to restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which have significantly impacted activities within the 17 ISN SRC pairs focused on pediatric nephrology.
Recordings will be open access and available on the ISN Academy.
