Chronic Renal Failure     (EWOPA)

47th Annual Meeting, June 2-4, 2016,  Heidelberg, Germany

 

Dear friends and colleagues,

 

We cordially invite you to attend the 47th Annual Meeting of the European Working Group on Psychosocial Aspects of Children with Chronic Renal Failure (EWOPA) on June 2-4, 2016, in Heidelberg, Germany!
This multidisciplinary meeting is a good forum for sharing  experiences
in care, education, management and research in the field of children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease and after renal transplantation.

 

This year, we focus on the following topics :

  •          Therapeutic camping and other group activities with patients
  •          Parents of adolescents and young adults
  •          Sport in children with ESRD
  •          The unborn renal child: complex issues
  •          Transition to adult health care and adult life

We invite you to submit one or more abstracts on these subjects. But this list of topics is not exclusive. Contributions on other topics in the field of psychosocial aspects of pediatric nephrology are also very welcome.

 

It is not only the EWOPA meeting that makes it worth coming to Heidelberg. Many visitors are attracted by the stunning settings and the historical flair. Besides,  Heidelberg is the home of Germany’s oldest university  and of many research institutions.
We are sure that you will enjoy your stay in Heidelberg!

 

We look forward to welcoming you to Heidelberg in June 2016!

 

Yours sincerely,
