NKF’s Kidney Care Conference, themed “Integrated Kidney Care: Advancing Together” was held on 25 & 26 May 2019 at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (Novena). This 3rdyear running conference provided multidisciplinary insights into the transformation and integration of chronic kidney disease care for the future, in the face of emerging complex challenges. It was also a platform for medical and allied healthcare professionals to share and exchange ideas as well as generate discussions to advance renal care.
For the first time, the conference was extended to renal experts in the Asia Pacific Region. We were also privileged to have five overseas distinguished speakers who hail from Canada, Hong Kong, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States to share their expert knowledge across the spectrum of renal care. Over 500 participants attended the conference which included counsellors, dietitians, nurses, partners, patient advocates, physicians, policymakers, rehabilitation specialists and social workers. Mr Chan Heng Kee, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, was the Guest-of-Honour and Professor Tan Chorh Chuan, Executive Director, Office for Healthcare Transformation, Ministry of Health, was the Keynote Speaker.
NKF remains committed to the care of kidney patients through better treatment outcomes and prevention of kidney diseases.
