GREAT CARE FOR LITTLE KIDNEYS. EVERYWHERE.
There are many ethical issues that arise in the care of people with kidney disease, including access to renal replacement therapies, benefits and burdens of chronic care and resource allocation. In pediatric nephrology the ethics become even more complicated, since parents and other caregivers are often tasked with making difficult and life altering decisions for their children and families, with less evidence and less certain prognoses than we have for adults. There are huge disparities globally in the type and amount of resources available to these children and families, with much of the world having little to no access to the tools that are common in high income countries. This webinar will introduce participants to many of the ethical issues in modern pediatric nephrology through discussion with a global group of pediatric nephrologists with expertise in ethics and resource allocation. We will also introduce a compendium of video resources available to those wanting to learn and explore more.
