Workgroup Pediatric CKD & Dialysis

Our Pediatric CKD and Dialysis work group brings together experts from all over Europe, both from pediatric and adult dialysis centers, and also includes patient representatives.

We will develop guidelines and educational material for CKD and dialysis management in close collaboration with the ESPN working groups. Outcome Indicators will be defined and evaluated in cooperation with the SONG Initiative.

We will work with other ERKNet groups to develop webinars and CME meetings, in collaboration with dialysis nurses and dietitians, to provide a ‘holistic approach’ to the management of end-stage kidney disease.

Our experts will provide online consulting to European pediatric CKD and dialysis centers within the ERKNet Consortium, and extending to all European countries.

We will aim to define research goals in accordance with patients’ needs and provide a platform for common research projects within the group.
