(Brussels, Belgium) – – – – Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) announces a new feature of its ongoing collaboration with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN). KDIGO has been collaborating with the ISN to produce webinars for more than four years. Webinar recordings are now available on the KDIGO website and the KDIGO YouTube channel.

Sixteen webinar videos are currently available, with at least four more to be presented in 2020 and added to the collection. The webinars are freely accessible and will continue to be available as long as the content remains current. The webinar recordings were originally posted to the ISN website for ISN members. Metrics provided by the ISN show that many of the KDIGO webinars set records for viewership and have been very favorably regarded by clinicians.

 

“This project is part of the KDIGO Remote Implementation Program that brings our work to a global audience without a need for travel.”
– John Davis, KDIGO CEO

 

John Davis, KDIGO CEO said, “We are proud to work closely with ISN on this valuable educational program. These webinars are based on KDIGO Guidelines and Conference Reports, which provide useful recommendations and observations on issues being faced by the global kidney community. Making these recordings openly available is an efficient way to reach clinicians around the world.”

He added, “This project is part of the KDIGO Remote Implementation Program that brings our work to a global audience without a need for travel.”

 

“The mission of the ISN includes on-going education of our members around the world. These webinars have been a valuable part of that mission. Working with KDIGO has been worthwhile for both organizations and for the global kidney community.”
– Charu Malik, ISN Executive Director

 

The collaborative webinar program between ISN and KDIGO began in 2015 and has grown steadily since then. In 2020, six original webinars are planned. Webinar presenters and moderators have included KDIGO Guideline Co-Chairs, Controversies Conference Co-Chairs, Guideline Work Group Members, and expert Controversies Conference attendees.

Charu Malik, ISN Executive Director said, “The mission of the ISN includes on-going education of our members around the world. These webinars have been a valuable part of that mission. Working with KDIGO has been worthwhile for both organizations and for the global kidney community.”

 

KDIGO is a Belgian foundation committed to developing and implementing nephrology guidelines that improve patient outcomes on a global basis.
