Annual Dialysis Meeting 2016 “Moving Towards Patient-Centred Care”



After a lapse in 2015, the NKF Annual Dialysis Meeting (ADM) series resumed for 2016. The 13th NKF ADM 2016 was held on 12-13 November at the VE Hotel & Residence in Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur.

With its theme “Moving Towards Patient-Centred Care”, the meeting attracted about 500 participants. These were people from the medical and para-medical field comprising nephrologists, doctors, medical assistants and nurses whose primary concern was providing haemodialysis treatment to patients suffering from End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
 
The main focus of the meeting was to update the participants on the current practices and knowledge in the treatment of chronic kidney disease, so that the medical personnel would be better equipped to treat kidney patients. The speakers were experts in nephrology and its related fields.
To compliment the ADM atmosphere of talks, 12 pharmaceutical companies set up booths to display their products with some even demonstrating the usage of these products. Literature about them was freely made available. NKF had a table to distribute pamphlets on kidney disease and to get participants to pledge to donate their organs.
 
For the success of the ADM, NKF is greatly grateful to:- 
  • Dr T. Thiruventhiran, the Chairman of its Organising Committee;
