The first Scientific and Educational Interaction Day (SEID) was held on October 26, 2019 in Vienna (Austria).
The Scientific and Educational Interaction Day (SEID) is an exciting meeting which boasts educational lectures focused mainly on clinical issues, starting from diagnosis all the way to prevention and therapy. Sessions focused on systemic diseases that affect the kidney (ANCA-associated vasculitis, lupus nephritis, anti-GBM disease), ethical aspects of using genetic results in clinical daily practice and its implications but also stimulating discussions on patients and nephrologists’ considerations on the choice among hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and transplantation, being the latter considered the best treatment option for ESKD, as well.
A consistent part of the meeting was devoted to vascular access which includes a practical session involving demonstrations of ultrasound scanning and fistula imaging on real patients. All participants had a chance to practise imaging under the supervision and guidance of experts.
The Satellite ‘New Drug’ Symposium preceded the SEID on October 25, 2019. This half-day symposium is designed to be a fully educational experience with some ‘industry focus’: key European speakers will contribute in the sessions providing updates on recent studies related to the treatment of anaemia, hyperkalaemia and diabetes in CKD.
Sessions are now available as e-materials.
