Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific Board of the MEA Nephrology Forum, we have great pleasure to invite you to attend the 15th MEA Nephrology Forum to be held in Porto.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “ Teamwork towards Effective Nephrology Care “

Optimum patient care involves many specialties beside Nephrology such as Intensivist, Vascular Surgeons, Nursing Staff, Renal Dietitian and above all good family support. Without this multidisciplinary approach we believe that patient care will be ineffective.

The present forum is   a continuum of  the educational activities that have extended for years without interruption. A panel of dedicated speakers has worked hard to accomplish the task of covering various fields from prevention to different management modalities of CKD and AKI. The participating nephrologists’ feedback of last year’s forum enlightened us in selecting the topics. The sessions and workshops will be attended this year by around one hundred and eighty participants from various countries.

Finally, we are proud to announce that an application has been made to the EACCME®  for CME accreditation of this event. We have also sought endorsements from the ISN, ERA-EDTA and Portuguese Society of Nephrology.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the 15thMEA Nephrology Forum in Porto 2018!


Best Wishes,

Scientific Committee 2018
