Renal care professionals from across the world gathered recently in Skopje for the 7th Congress of the Macedonian Society of Nephrology, Dialysis, Transplantation and Artificial Organs (MSNDTAO).

The event ran under the theme "From Prevention to Best Treatment Options in CKD", alongside an International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) teaching course endorsed by the European Renal Association (ERA), titled "Rare Diseases in Pediatric Nephrology". It provided abundant opportunities for networking and discussions. Insights were also shared about the latest developments & challenges in preventive care, chronic kidney disease (CKD) management, research & development.

Diaverum’s Medical Teams were active participants at the event and Dr. Fernando Macário, our Chief Medical Officer, served as a member of the event’s international scientific advisory board, alongside other esteemed speakers.

Dr Macário was also one of the Chairs during the session titled "CKD and DKD – treatment strategies" and delivered a presentation on the topic of “Advancing CKD care: Innovative strategies for enhanced patient value". The presentation focused on how Diaverum is leveraging digitalisation to deliver personalised, standardised, efficient and high-quality care, and highlighted our commitment to applying cutting-edge medical discoveries and achieving better health outcomes. Dr Macário also touched on our True care culture, and how it is central to the ways in which we empower patients to live fulfilling lives.

In addition, members of Diaverum North Macedonia’s Medical Team participated in three presentations and poster sessions: Dr. Nikolina Smokovska, who was also a member of the event organising committee, gave a presentation on the topic of "Individualised approach to dialysate electrolyte concentration"; Dr. Kristina Petrova presented a case report titled "Hemodialysis patient with an abdominal aortic aneurysm- case report"; and Dr. Elena Taseva presented another case report titled "Uncommon co-occurrence: Endogenous Cushing's syndrome in a systemic lupus erythematosus patient undergoing hemodialysis”.

Commenting on the event, Dr Macário shared: “I am thrilled to have participated in this congress, which brought together renowned experts and pioneers in nephrology from around the globe. It was an incredible opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from state-of-the-art presentations, and discuss future directions in nephrology care and research. I am grateful for the opportunity I had to present our innovative strategies and how we are integrating AI and digital solutions to deliver value-based renal care in a modern healthcare environment”.
