November 06, 2021 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Session Description

Conservative kidney management is not new, but its uptake across nephrology remains suboptimal. This session is designed to go beyond defining conservative kidney management and enhance its delivery. The topics focus on enhancing the quality and consistency of conservative kidney management, trends and policies that support growth of conservative kidney management, illustration of how geriatric conditions may complicate its delivery, and insights into novel therapies for addressing uremia.
