SRC Program Level C- NIGERIA- Canada

EC Institute: Paediatric Nephrology Units, College of medicine, University College Hospital Ibadan

EC Liaison officer: Adebowale Dele Ademola

SC Institute: Div of Pedriatric Nephrology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary

SC Liaison Officer: Susan Samuel

Name of SRC Pair: Nigeria- Canada

SRC Level: C

Learning objectives:

Principal areas that require attention in the emerging centre include:

  • Peritoneal dialysis (PD) for children with acute kidney injury. Currently in Ibadan, we provide PD manually using feeding tubes. The manual PD system puts a lot of burden on the staff and is high risk for infection. We want to begin automated PD, and we want to use standard catheters like the Kimmel, Cook and Tenckhoff catheters.
  • We can provide haemodialysis (HD) for children > 17kg, but, we want to provide HD in younger children with AKI using appropriate cathethers and skills.
  • We want to gain skills in interventional nephrology (percutaneous renal biopsy, insertion of Tenckhoff catheters, insertion of central venous dialysis cathethers, etc).
  • Our hospital has carried out 4 kidney transplants in the past, with the last transplant about 2 years ago in an adult. We want to recommence our kidney transplantation program in adults and older adolescents.
  • We want to obtain training in renal biopsy specimen handling and renal pathology reporting collaboration to improve quality of our renal biopsy reporting.
  • We need training and support to conduct clinical and biomarker research and need specific training in clinical research methodology, database development, research, grants and manuscript writing.
  • We need support to assist our government and community advocacy efforts to raise funds and awareness for kidney care in Nigeria.


Both centres are well aligned and motivated to undertake this partnership. The supporting centre Liaison officer met the Liaison Officer from Emerging centre about 5 years ago at the World Congress of Nephrology in Vancouver. Since then, they have collaborated in the areas of clinical research, and as a result of the collaboration they have published two papers, a 3rd paper is in the final stages of acceptance. Furthermore, they also collaborated to obtain an ISN Clinical Research and Prevention grant. The Liaison Officer from the supporting centre has put together a team of experts on AKI from Canada who are supporting the project. To meet the above needs we intend to have short term visits of nephrologists from the emerging centre to the sister centre.

The visit will cover areas such as transplantation, tissue typing, peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis, interventional nephrology, renal pathology and research. Specific opportunities that will be made available to the Emerging centre free of charge will be:

  • 1) tissue typing course in accredited HLA lab;
  • 2) short term training in renal pathology and specimen handling;
  • 3) short term training course in automated periotoneal dialysis, hemodialysis and CRRT by experience pediatric dialysis nurses;
  • 4) bedside clinical observership in adult and pediatric transplantation;
  • 5) clinical research methodology course. Nephrologist and nurse visits from the supporting centre will visit Ibadan to conduct on site training in automated PD, HD, transplantation, clinical research and teaching of various topics in nephrology and renal physiology. Together, we will pursue funding opporutnities for research and clinical expansion programs in Ibadan from ISN, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, industry and other sources.

The Royal Liverpool University has been working together with the Al Shifa hospital in Gaza since 2013. Read 'The Guardian' report of Salim, a member of the Liverpool team during their last visit to Gaza in February:

This webinar will identify social, economic and ethnic characteristics of Latin America, recognize the burden of disease risk factors and ESRD in this region and highlight the present gap between estimated incidence of ESRD and real access to therapy.


This presentation was given by Vishal Vaidya, Associate Professor of Medicine and Head of Systems Toxicology for the Harvard Program in Theurapeutic Sciences. It was presented during the CRRT Conference 2015: "Updates in ICU Medicine: Controversies, Challenges and Solutions," held in San Diego from 17-20 February 2015.

In an educational program a complete and up-to-date Curriculum is essential. The Residents, Fellows, and Practicing Nephrologists rely on their mentors to train them in procedures necessary to provide successful dialysis access. However, since there are several ways to accomplish any goal, the trainees also need a Curriculum which summarizes literature to provide evidence regarding advantages and disadvantages of each technique. This Core Curriculum provides this summary for peritoneal dialysis catheter procedures, which are the sine qua non of a successful dialysis program.

The Curriculum represents a collaborative effort from Interventional Nephrologists in a wide variety of practices, from Universities to Private Hospitals to Access Centers. Each author is a recognized expert in the particular procedure or technique that they present.
