Renal Conditions: Moving on up together

Renal conditions: Moving on up together!

Working together to manage paediatric onset renal conditions moving into adult services

3rd annual study day

Friday 1st February 2019

Heartbeat Suite, Southampton General Hospital

Dear Colleague.

Last year we held our second ‘Renal conditions: Moving on up together’ study day. It was a great success and due to popular demand, we are running the third ‘Renal conditions: Moving on up together’ study day on Friday 1st February 2019 at Southampton

Once again, we are inviting you to attend the free educational day for paediatric and adult MDTs involved in looking after young people with kidney disease. The day is also open to patients and carers. The day will cover some of the more complex renal conditions moving to adult services.

Advances in medical care have led to the many more paediatric kidney patients surviving into adulthood with conditions that not so long ago would probably have been fatal in childhood. Whilst clearly very good news it can lead to daunting experience for the MDT as they provide care for patients with conditions with which they are unfamiliar. This is in addition to the well documented challenges that the patient and family face as they move into adult care.

The study day will be an opportunity to review some of these renal conditions, share examples of good practice and resources that are working across the country and identify areas that require additional resource development.

By popular demand we are continuing to have a session where cases are presented by attendees. If you would like to present a case or share a resource please send a short abstract to arvind.nagra@uhs.nhs.uk by 31st December 2018. Those selected will be notified by 12th January 2019.

The style of the meeting will be informal, dynamic and interactive with plenty of time for discussion.

Programme attached.

Please register for the day at:

Please share this invitation with your multi-disciplinary teams, patients and carers.

Looking forward to working together and sharing- after all “sharing is caring!”

If you have any questions, please email me at nephrourology@uhs.nhs.uk

Best wishes
