Guidelines for caring for children with kidney diseases

Over the past many years, BAPN has worked with partner organisations to produce usable up to date evidence based guidelines for use in the UK.

In 2013 it was agreed that for appropriate topics The Renal Association would produce joint adult and paediatric guidelines with BAPN. Renal association guidelines link here.
