51th Annual Meeting of the European Working Group on Psychosocial Aspects of Children with Chronic Renal Failure (EWOPA)

EWOPA is a multidisciplinary group interested in the psychosocial care of children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Childhood CKD is a rare condition at the heart of the European Rare Kidney Disease Reference Network (ERKNet). The EWOPA meeting is fully aligned with ERKNet's mission to promote interdisciplinary care and research focused on patients' needs. 

Hence, EWOPA, the Belgian Society of Pediatric Nephrologists (BPN) and the ERKNet member centres Leuven, Ghent and Heidelberg will join forces in organizing the 51st annual EWOPA meeting! The conference will be held onsite at the University Hospital Leuven from 8 to 10 June 2023. 

The event is endorsed by the European Society for Pediatric Nephrology (ESPN). 

We invite all stakeholders caring for children with CKD to participate, both with scientific reports and with presentations of activities, interventions and experiences in everyday clinical practice, with focus on psychosocial issues and multidisciplinary care of children and adolescents with CKD .
