Welcome Message from Congress President
On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the 18th Asian Colloquium in Nephrology 2019, in the beautiful garden city of Singapore.
The 18th Asian Colloquium in Nephrology (ACN) incorporates the following:
- SOTANC State-of-the-Art Nephrology Course (Nursing)
- Singapore Society of Nephrology Annual Scientific Meeting; and
- Asia Renal Association – Asian Nephrology Congress
This 2-Full Day Congress and 1-Day Pre-Congress will take place from 19 – 21 July 2019.
Kidney disease is on the rise in many parts of the world, including Asia, leading to a high incidence of End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD). With a diverse population, the care of chronic kidney disease patients in Asia is challenging. The 18th Asian Colloquium in Nephrology is the best platform for discussing, sharing and collaborating for Asian kidney disease care providers. We aim to enhance the quality of care for Asian kidney disease patients through this meeting.
The 2019 Scientific Committee selected the theme “Best Practices in Kidney Care in Asia” and some of the key themes for this coming Congress include: CKD-mineral bone disorder and cardiovascular disease in ESKD, anaemia, Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) versus Haemodialysis, infection control in haemodialysis, infection in PD, quality assurance and dialysis access.
This Congress will feature renowned clinicians from all over Asia, who will share, discuss and debate new developments and controversial topics that will impact our daily practice.
This Congress will be an excellent opportunity for networking, renewing old ties and making new friends. It will also offer the best in terms of topics and a fantastic opportunity to interact with the thought leaders in the field.
My team and I look forward to welcoming you to the vibrant city of Singapore in 2019!
