The AKI & CRRT conference provides a comprehensive review of advances in clinical care, research and technology in critical care medicine with a focus on the kidney and renal support techniques. The conference is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary interactions among caregivers involved in the management of patients in intensive care units. Physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists and other allied personnel from industry have opportunities to learn from each other. The conference utilizes a combination of invited lectures; case-based small group workshops, debates, hands-on interactive and simulation-based workshops.
