Moving Forward in 2020 - Challenging Renal Practice

So far 2020 has been an unusual year, and we have all faced many challenges. Renal staff have adapted to new ways of thinking/ working in a COVID world. The RSA New Zealand Branch invites renal staff to build on this resilience with new ways of thinking and challenging renal practice.

This exciting program will challenge your thinking and current renal practice. As noted below, the symposium offers presentations from a variety of experienced renal staff including two well respected Nephrologists, a Clinical Renal Physiologist and a Nurse Practitioner. The program will provide thought provoking education for the wider renal audience, and is open to all renal staff.
