Grand Challenge in Dialysis Access Synergy 2020

 

We are inviting presentations in these three themes :

1.  Dialysis access program that makes an impact
2.  Salvage of difficult failing or thrombosed HD access
3.  Manage and resolve terrible complications of HD access

All submissions are assured of the opportunity of a podium presentation.

A certificate of appreciation will be given to all participants of the competition.

 

The three themes are:

 

1. Dialysis access service program that makes an impact

 

  • Tell us how the newly established or reformed dialysis access program in your practice makes an impact on service quality, patients' outcomes, patients' satisfaction or medical resource consumption of the institution/region.

 

  • The service program could be on peritoneal dialysis or hemodialysis or both.

 

  • As the service program is institution and country orientated, there will not be any blinding of participant’s institution and country of practice.

 

Each participant has 9 minutes presentation time and 3 minutes Q&A time. The judge panel will provide 2 minutes feedback towards the end. The first stage of the competition will be held on 28 March 2019.

 

The 2 highest score participants will make the presentation again in the main conference, held on 29 to 30 March 2019, to compete for the final Champion. Marks will be given by the judge panel and conference delegates through real-time voting.

 

The champion will receive a traveling scholar sponsorship of SGD 1,000 to support the travelling expenses of visiting one of the faculty members' institution (the champion’s choice). The first runner up will receive a traveling scholar sponsorship of SGD 600. 

2. Salvage of difficult failing or thrombosed HD access

3. Manage and resolve terrible complications of HD access
