Short Description:
In the last years there was a significant progress in our understanding of the pathogenesis of both primary and secondary glomerulonephritides, which will be hopefully soon translated into the new modes of treatments and improvement of outcome of patients.
The aim of this one-day ERA-EDTA CME course, which will be a part of the traditional 12th Prague Postgraduate Training Course endorsed by the Czech Society of Nephrology, is to review these new findings in glomerular disease (with the exclusion of IgAN, which is going to be a topic of another suggested CME course) with the impact on following topics: 1/ epidemiology of glomerular disease, 2/ developmental aspects, 3/ pathogenesis, 4/ selected diagnostic approaches, 5/ new histological classifications, 6/ current treatment algorithms.
The course is targeted to junior nephrologists, moderately advanced, internists and researchers, who are interested in the management of patients with glomerular disease.
The course will be accompanied by the “Meet the expert” session to allow the participants to exchange knowledge in clinical practice with European leading nephrologists and interactive case-report session.
