Implementation: Breaking Barriers to Reach the Bedside

November 05, 2023 | 09:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: Room 109, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Despite the abundant body of evidence showing the effectiveness of recent innovations such as SGLT2 inhibitors and advanced test systems, there is a paucity of implementation among nephrologists. This session presents both patient and practitioner recommendations to improve implementation across the continuum of care.

ASN thanks the ASN AKINow Basic Science Workgroup for assistance with this session.
