Nearly 400 kidney professionals from around the world gathered recently in Bruges, Belgium, for the Annual EuroPD 2023 Meeting. Held between 27-30 November, this event is considered to one of the most exciting forums through which to explore the topics and issues affecting Peritoneal Dialysis (PD), as well as home therapies.

The Meeting was especially welcomed this year, following its return to an in-person format, after a long hiatus brought about by the pandemic. It focused on three key themes:

  • Dialysis Provider Motivation
  • Empowering the Patient
  • Education of Professionals and Lack of Staffing

In addition, delegates had the opportunity to delve into topics that ranged from basic sciences to the findings of the EU-funded IMPROVE-PD programme, sustainability and big data.

Diaverum’s Team was an active participant during the Meeting, having presented three posters. Dr Marta Gemene, Country Medical Director, Dr Nicoleta Havasi, PD Coordinator, and Dr Andreea Costea representing Diaverum Romania, shared two posters, entitled “The necessity to maintain the wellbeing of patients on CAPD in Romania ” Ultrasound- Diagnostic and Monitoring tool of dialysis patients”.

The third poster, presented by Suzanne Pearce, Corporate Nursing Director, was entitled “Independent predictors of one-year quality of life trend in a population of peritoneal dialysis patients: time on dialysis matters” and examined the importance of follow up of quality of life changes through time for PD patients.

Suzanne had this to say about the event: “EuroPD is one of the most eminent events in the renal care calendar, so I was very pleased to have had the opportunity to present the important work Diaverum is doing in home therapies. It was also fantastic to share knowledge and new ideas in this engaging forum, which brings together so many experts within our field, together”.

“Our team had two very fruitful and constructive days in the wonderful city of Bruges, and I would like to express my thanks to Marta, Nicoleta and Andreea for their crucial contributions”.
