Dialysis Working Group

Deputy Chair, ISN Dialysis Working Group

Call for Expressions of Interest and Nominations

The ISN welcomes expressions of interest and nominations for the position of Deputy Chair of the ISN Dialysis Working Group, succeeding Abdou Niang who will become Chair of the Committee in replacement of Simon Davies, at the ISN World Congress of Nephrology 2021 (WCN’21).

The purpose of the Dialysis Working Group is to coordinate ISN activities within the dialysis area, develop initiatives to advance the availability of dialysis for AKI and ESKD worldwide and support the training of individuals from low resource countries in dialysis.

This is a volunteer leadership position for a period of approximately 2 years, starting at WCN’21 and ending at WCN’23. At the end of their term, the Deputy Chair is then expected to succeed the Chair. There is no honorarium attached to this role. ISN staff provide operational support to the Program, and the Chair and Deputy Chair are supported by a committee with regional representation which contributes to review and approval of submitted proposals.

The main work of the ISN Dialysis Working Group is to deliver outputs as required for the ISN ESKD 10-year plan and the WHO-ISN ESKD Deliverable Working Group, and to coordinate educational programs, especially in low resource settings, focusing on dialytic therapy for AKI and ESKD. The ISN Dialysis Working Group ordinarily has a face-to-face meeting at the WCN and/or American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week.

This call for expressions of interest and nominations is open to all ISN members in good standing.
