Plan a Scientific Meeting Online Through the ISN Continuing Medical Education Program
Applications for ISN Continuing Medical Education (CME) meetings are accepted throughout the year. Discover the CME Program here.
Due to ongoing travel and social restrictions resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the CME Program has adapted to support faculty experts to present virtual talks and workshops at regional nephrology-related meetings.
What educational content could help improve kidney care in your community?
Earlier this year, the ISN CME Program supported the "Acute Kidney Injury Across Two Continents: An Anglo-Indian Virtual AKI Symposium" organized by an ISN Sister Renal Centers (SRC) pair between health centers in Hyderabad, India, and Birmingham in the UK.
You don't have to miss out on an outstanding program of scientific and educational content: A special registration fee grants you immediate on-demand access to all sessions and congress features until May 30, 2021.
The podcast features Professor Ifeoma Ulasi, Nigeria, ISN Executive Committee and Advocacy Working Group (AWG) member, and the late Professor Donal O’Donoghue, United Kingdom, chair of the AWG at the time of recording.

ISN Supports Call for Action to EU Commissioner to Reduce the Burden of CKD
Earlier this year, the European Kidney Health Alliance (EKHA) and the European Kidney Patients’ Federation (EKPF) had a meeting with the European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, Ms. Stella Kyriakides. They presented EKHA’s call-to-action (CTA) to improve prevention, treatment, and care of CKD in the aftermath of COVID-19 and discuss EU priorities for the delivery of a strong European Health Union for patients living with kidney disease.
As a full member of the EKHA, the ISN helped draft the CTA, which the Commissioner strongly welcomed, and will play a key role in implementing it.
Speaking during the session International Kidney Innovations Consortium: International Organizations Working in the Space Provide Global Perspectives on May 13, ISN President Agnes Fogo will share her views on how the ISN can build on existing knowledge to help drive change through empowering local communities and supporting fledgling patient groups in lower and middle income countries.
Timing of COVID-19 Vaccine in the Setting of Anti-CD20 Therapy: A Primer for Nephrologists
This primer provides a review of literature on established vaccine use in anti-CD20 treatment and recommendations for both the timing of COVID-19 vaccines and measuring responses to administration. It serves as a guide to the pathobiology of B-cell–depleting therapy and as a useful aid to practitioners and trainees in nephrology.
