ISN Members can register, at a reduced rate, for the upcoming ISN endorsed Infectious and Global Nephrology Course 2017, taking place at the Royal Free Hospital in London on March 22 and 23, 2017.

This two-day course will cover renal disease secondary to infectious agents and the management of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in resource-poor environments.

The first day will cover pathophysiology, clinical presentations and the management of both globally common and clinically important infectious agents causing renal disease. Through a mixture of informal lectures, case discussions and workshops, topics covered will range from acute sepsis-related AKI such as malaria, to direct involvement of the kidney by viruses, bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi and parasites as well as the pathological consequences of remote infection such as post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis, cryoglobulinaemia and infection-associated IgA nephropathy.

On day two, talks will focus on the epidemiology of, and practicalities of managing AKI and CKD in low-income countries, along with the challenges of establishing and running dialysis and transplant programs in resource-poor settings.

The keynote speaker will be ISN Programs Chair John Feehally, Emeritis Consultant Nephrologist at University Hospitals of Leicester, and Professor of Renal Medicine at the University of Leicester, UK. The course is an ideal networking opportunity to meet with a number of clinicians who have successfully delivered clinical and research projects around the world.
