Posters are a great way for the kidney care community to showcase and share their clinical research and quality initiatives.
Wrap-up & poster forum

Wrap-up & poster forum – be part of it!

18 posters were submitted this year, click here to view them all! 

There's fantastic kidney care research and initiatives happening across BC. For the Top 10 poster virtual session, teams from across the province submitted posters on local or regional research, education and patient care initiatives. 

"Show us what you've done!" we said – well, you delivered! 

The evaluation process is never easy but after careful consideration of excellent submissions, our reviewers scored all posters and came up with the top 10. Now, we want you to take part in the poster forum. Each Top 10 poster team will have 10 minutes to present their poster, followed by a five-minute Q&A. 

Don't miss this opportunity to wrap up BC Kidney Week by engaging with your kidney care peers as they present their posters. 

And remember, the Wrap Up also includes the presentation of the Wilma Crocket Memorial Award to Mary Lewis – congratulations, Mary!
