E-Posters

Posters are a great way for the kidney care community to showcase and share their Clinical Research and Quality Initiatives.
About
We invite all BC kidney care and transplant teams to present posters on local or regional research, education and patient care initiatives. All topics related to enhancing the quality of care for patients, including pre-dialysis, dialysis, and transplant are accepted.

Abstracts can be submitted in either of the following categories: Clinical Research and Quality Initiatives. A team of judges will review all posters during the conference and prizes will be awarded for the top two in each category.

Definitions

  • Clinical Research: To create new knowledge that can be generalized in other populations and settings.
  • Quality Initiative: Existing knowledge to improve health care outcomes within a local health care institution or setting.
All posters will be posted to the BCKD and BCR websites following the event unless otherwise specified
