ERA-EDTA Istanbul

The 50th edition of the ERA EDTA congress will he be held in Istanbul from the 18th until the 21st in may. Since I mainly work i the field of thrombosis, I have never been to this congress, but I probably will visit it next year: The epidemiological team from the AMC is invite to organise an educational session on clinical epidemiology and they asked me to join their team. The content of this methodological session will resemble the smaller meeting we had last year in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Also, I will also be scoring some abstracts for this meeting: I got an email telling me, or warning me perhaps, to expect up to 80 abstract for me to score. In just a couple of days. Let’s hope that they have clear guidelines to help, otherwise it will be tough nut to crack. Nonetheless, both activities give me some insight in the field of nephrology and will help me to further train my epidemiological teaching skills.
