Edwin Castillo, ISN Educational Ambassador Committee member, and Tushar Vachharajani, past chair of the ISN Education Working Group, Interventional Nephrology Working Group and North America and Caribbean Regional Board member, have written a joint paper on dialysis vascular access training in Peru, which has been published in Kidney International Reports.
The paper outlines the positive impact of the Peruvian Vascular Access Association (APDAV), formed to promote vascular access-focused education for those involved in providing dialysis care. Recordings of the 2nd APDAV International Congress, 2019, are available on the ISN Academy here.
Also highlighted is the ISN’s significant contribution to developing dialysis vascular access and coordinated care in the region through the involvement of the ISN Interventional Nephrology Working Group and ISN Granting Programs. The APDAV has since been recognized as an ISN Interventional Nephrology Training Center in Latin America.
