Infectious and Global Nephrology Course 2019
Venue: Atrium, Royal Free Hospital, London, NW3 2QG
This 2-day course will cover renal disease secondary to infectious agents and the management of acute and chronic kidney disease in resource-poor environments.
Day 1 is aimed at those with an interest in infectious diseases or nephrology and will cover pathophysiology, clinical presentation and 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 2 the focus will be on non-infectious renal disease around the world including 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 programmes in resource-poor settings. The course will also provide an ideal networking opportunity through informal discussions with a number of clinicians who have successfully delivered clinical and research projects around the world.
Who it is this course for?
The course is aimed at nephrologists, infectious disease specialists, general medicine trainees, consultants, and renal nursing staff with particular emphasis on the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases impacting on the kidney as well as the practice of nephrology in resource poor environments.
