ERA-EDTA cares

The ERA-EDTA values the comments that congress delegates have submitted via the post congress feedback questionnaire. The Association is always looking for new ways to improve services, learning and networking opportunities. For this reason, in the upcoming e-newsletters, we would like to address some of the issues that matter to you.

Is there the opportunity for researchers to receive the relevant training in techniques that will enable them to prepare and deliver effective presentations? This could encourage those attending the congress, especially young researchers, to leave the meeting more inspired and motivated.

 

First of all, we would like to thank users who submitted similar comments and suggestions. Thanks to this important feedback, the ERA-EDTA is considering the option of preparing a template for slides to be used by those contributing to the ERA-EDTA Congresses, which is aimed at improving scientific communication. The ERA-EDTA Council also recently approved a new initiative aimed at facilitating the interaction between speakers and chairs in view of congress sessions: a special area within the Speakers’ Pre-View room will be set up to enable chairs to discuss the relevant aspects of the talks with the respective speakers, so that during the discussion the ‘hot issues’ raised by the presentations can be thoroughly examined.
