4th European Renal Osteodystrophy (EUROD) Winter Meeting
The European Renal Osteodystrophy (EUROD) Winter meeting 2021 fully virtual event organised by EUROD, a CKD-MBD Working Group initiative has been held on January 14-15, 2021. The meeting boasted the organisation of an EUROD research forum with mini lectures and free communications, especially designed for basic and clinical researchers in CKD-MBD with a focus on the scientific progress in renal bone disease, as well as educational sessions on the diagnostics in renal bone disease: the old, the new and the emerging.
Nephrology Virtual Preceptorship: Fracture Prevention in CKD
Bone disease has some enigmatic aspects because of the wide variety of its presentations, the limited ability to make correct diagnosis without invasive procedures, but a rapidly expanding field of treatment options that do require precise diagnosis.
The ‘Nephrology Virtual Preceptorship: Fracture Prevetion in CKD’, a fully virtual event organised by CKD-MBD Working Group, one of the official ERA-EDTA Working Groups, has been held on December 4, 2020.
The purpose of the meeting was to become familiar with the disease, increase enthusiasm facilitate networking and exchange for this challenging component of nephrology and endocrinology.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, there are travel restrictions in place in many European countries, therefore to ensure the safety of all participants, the CME Introductory Course on Epidemiology has been postponed to 2021.
Many nephrologists perform some kind of research in addition to their clinical duties. The aim of this epidemiology course is to teach nephrologists, pediatric nephrologists, and nephrology researchers basic epidemiology principles and to have them practice their new skills in hands-on sessions (exercises, discussions and SPSS). The knowledge and skills obtained will assist participants to improve the quality of their nephrology research.
