In June 2022, KDIGO will hold a Controversies Conference called Improving CKD Quality of Care: Trends and Perspectives. This conference will examine and discuss best practices for improving the precision of CKD diagnosis and prognosis, managing the complications of CKD, enhancing the safety of care, and maximizing patient quality of life.

Much attention has been centered on the role of GFR and albuminuria in CKD management, while there has been less emphasis on the cause of CKD. This forward-looking conference intends to revisit the importance of accurate CKD diagnosis as well as how current concepts about disease variability and treatment heterogeneity may improve prognostication and identification of proper treatments and enhance the quality of care. Drs. Kai-Uwe Eckardt (Charité Berlin, Germany) and Holly Mattix-Kramer (Loyola University Chicago, USA) will co-chair this conference.

KDIGO makes preliminary Scope of Work documents available for public review prior to the final planning of any Controversies Conference, and we invite you to provide feedback on the Conference Scope of Work which can be found in the Resources section. Kindly submit your comments via the feedback form below no later than Wednesday, June 1st.
