Dear DR. Gil Chernin,
We are contacting you on behalf of prof. Ronco about the 39th Vicenza Course on AKI & CRRT that will be held virtually in October 26-29, 2021.
After 39 years of putting together an updated course on the most important advances in the area of nephrology, critical care, cardiology and cardiac surgery, it is still our mission to offer a multidisciplinary, high-profile, scientific course. The faculty is composed of more than 50 key experts, carefully selected from their different disciplines and representing the top scientists and investigators of current literature. The 2021 edition will be fully virtual and will be aired on a special e-learning platform. The course will be spread over 4 days in which the time of scientific lectures and controversies will cover the selected topics in a series of sessions for a duration of 3-4 hours/day.
The course contains a compendium of current knowledge on Critical Care Nephrology and covers two main topics: 1) Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) describing the epidemiology, pathophysiology, mechanism, prevention and diagnosis through biomarkers and action strategies in different settings such as cardiac surgery, intensive care unit, cardiology, nephrology and sepsis. 2) Continuous Renal Replacement Therapies (CRRT) describing indications, modalities, prescription and delivery, different techniques and clinical results.
This is a unique event in 2021 and it will serve as a pillar for knowledge and education in the fields of AKI, CRRT and Critical Care Nephrology.
For 39 years, we have been your partner in education and science. Please continue to support us in our effort for a better patient care. For these reasons we would like to submit the request for the official endorsement of The Israeli Society of Nephrology and Hypertension (ISHN) to the 39th VICENZA COURSE ON AKI & CRRT – virtual meeting.
