education drives progress

Hosted in partnership with the Illinois Council of Nephrology Nurses and Technicians (ICNNT), the Illinois Council on Renal Nutrition (ICRN) and the Illinois Council of Nephrology Social Workers (ICNSW), the Interdisciplinary Nephrology Conference is an opportunity for dietitians, nurses, social workers and other renal professionals to connect with colleagues, participate in interactive educational workshops, and visit with corporate exhibitors.

 

This annual symposium is a highlight of the NKFI's professional development calendar. The day begins with a group breakfast, a set of presentations, and visits from corporate exhibitors. Following lunch, attendees will attend in-depth salons, hear from experts, and take part in a series of small breakout sessions and discussions. Previous conference topics have included:

 

  • Information about new medicine

  • Professional mental health

  • Ethics and patient care

  • Dialysis and cardiac health

  • Nutrition and kidney health

  • Caring for the chronically ill

  • New technology and advancements in treatment

  • Working with economically disadvantaged patients 

In addition to the day's educational programming, the Interdisciplinary Nephrology Conference is also an opportunity for all participating councils to conduct their annual meetings. The conference also offers continuing education credits for nurses, technicians, social workers, and dietitians.
