Pocket Guide to Clinical Dialysis

Updated and revised throughout, this second edition of Pocket Guide to Clinical Dialysis contains the latest information on the clinical care and management of chronic kidney disease through dialysis treatment. It is an ideal quick-reference guide for medical students, resident medical officers, junior advanced trainees in nephrology, nurses, and paramedical staff, providing practical and essential information about haemodialysis, its physiology and equipment used, chronic peritoneal dialysis, and acute dialysis. The book has been written by doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dietitians of the Western Sydney Renal Service, and their colleagues in other Australian renal units. 


ISN Education is releasing 4 free chapters of this book, covering early CKD & maintenance dialysis preparation, cardiovascular risk and management, managing first HD treatment and assessing the adequacy of PD.

APSN partners with ISN GO

For several years the Asian Pacific Society of nephrology (APSN) has partnered with ISN to offer ISN-APSN Fellowships. The Executive Committee of APSN recognizes the importance of other programs within ISN Global Outreach Programs (GO) and so has offered to partner with ISN from 2013 in its other GO programs as well: CME, Education Ambassador, Research & Prevention, Sister Renal Centre. These sorts of partnerships make sense because the mission of ISN and APSN (and other regional societies) are closely aligned, unnecessary duplication can be avoided and valuable resources can be stretched further. It is a good model for other regional and national societies to consider!

This was presented during ISN’s Forefronts Symposium 2012 taking place in Melbourne from October 4-7, 2012. The Forefronts 2012 in Melbourne brought together leading nephrologists and active investigators around the theme Tubulointerstitial Disease in Diabetic Nephropathy.
