DOPPS Program Spring Scientific Update Meeting via webinar on Friday, June 9th from 8am – 11am

Featuring new scientific work with internationally-known speakers, expert panels, early career investigators, and audience participation.

Please join us  Friday, June 9th from 8am – 11am for the latest from the international DOPPS Program, including our studies of in-center hemodialysis (DOPPS), peritoneal dialysis (PDOPPS), and non-dialysis advanced chronic kidney disease (CKDopps). During the program, we will present what is upcoming in the DOPPS program, and much more:

  • Red blood cell transfusions across the DOPPS program
  • CKDOPPS takes a deep dive into the transition to dialysis period
  • Hemoglobin trajectories and outcomes in patients with CKD
  • Recent changes in dialysis CKD-MBD practice patterns
  • Recent PDOPPS findings in peritonitis
