The European Renal Nutrition Working Group aims to conduct research on the impact of lifestyle, diet, nutrient homeostasis and protein-energy wasting (PEW) management on chronic kidney disease (CKD) outcomes. European research in this field is already high quality but hampered by reduced funding, small patient cohorts and scientific isolation.
To overcome these obstacles, ERN aims to create solid and multinational European collaborations to deepen the understanding of nutrition and CKD complications.
Furthermore, ERN collaborates on educational activities to improve and disseminate knowledge in the field of Renal Nutrition within the ERA Congresses, CME courses, consensus statements and review articles, also in collaboration with other ERA Working Groups and Committees.
Finally and overall, it aims to stimulate joint initiatives with other European and International Societies in Renal Nutrition.
