About the Listerve

The following are Listerve resources that allow you to post questions to an international community of kidney health practitioners, including physicians, nurses, dieticians and social workers.

Listerves publish email conversations to your emailbox, and allow individuals to respond without being present in the conversation simultaneously.

Conversations on the listerv are public and broadcast to all subscribers. These systems are particularly helpful when two people are conversing across distant time zones. Patient information with specific names or other identifying information are not allowed. All listserves have a respectful conduct policy, and failing to uphold the policy will have your access revoked.


Discussion groups with an asterisk (*) beside their name exist in digest format as well.  The content of each digest is the same as the corresponding group but arrives as one message a day.
