Supportive Care Special Interest Group (SIG)

Following the 2019 Renal Society of Australasia Conference in Auckland, New Zealand a subset of members who had a special interest in supportive care, met and decided it would be beneficial to establish a Special Interest Group for those who are passionate in providing and evaluating Supportive Care for those people with Advanced Kidney Disease.

The goal of this group is to:

  • Share information with its members;
  • Support new clinicians within this specialty;
  • Provide education to all members of the RSA; and
  • Review data that is being collected and instruments used and also to aim for publication of combined results

The Supportive Care SIG Terms of Reference (ToR) are available here.

Office-bearers:
Chair - Sarah Russo - Sarah.Russo@health.nsw.gov.au
