Session Description

This session is a prioritized summary of recent advances from peer-reviewed knowledge in the causes, diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes related to kidney diseases that could or should drive evidence-based changes in care for children with renal diseases. Experts provide a summary of recent publications in each clinical area, summarize the recent advances in their field (prioritizing pediatric evidence over adult where available), interpret them in the context of current approaches to clinical care, and end with a summary of suggested evidence-based improvements for clinical care.
