Diaverum representatives hosted a roundtable at the 50th EDTNA/ ERCA Conference, which concluded earlier this week.
The Conference, held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, marked the first time in over two years that global representatives from the renal care community met in person. It is considered to be one of the most important events in the sector’s calendar, focusing on nurturing and driving the highest levels of education, standards and research.
The roundtable, hosted at the Willem Burger Zaal Hall of the de Doellen ICC, navigated the exciting theme of Artificial Intelligence and Digital Advances in Renal Nursing Care. Representing Diaverum in this discussion were senior members of the Corporate Nursing team: Israel Silva, Filiz Akdeniz and Suzanne Pearce, Corporate Nursing Directors; and Carlos Lucas, Director Medical Protocols and Standardisation. During the invitation-only session, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about Diaverum’s digital transformation strategy and how this is playing a leading role in reshaping the future of the renal care industry. More specifically, it covered Diaverum’s digital ecosystem including our breakthrough AI model, that represents a step-change in Vascular Access (VA) thrombosis prevention, and our proprietary Treatment Guidance System (TGS), that supports our nursing staff in adhering to standardised clinical workflows, minimising care variability and margin of error.
Commenting on this participation, Carlos Lucas, Director Medical Protocols and Standardisation, said: “I am delighted and proud that once again, Diaverum has demonstrated how we set the industry standard for high-quality digital transformation of renal care, further enhancing our patients’ lives and our clinical teams ability to do so”.
Suzanne Pearce, Corporate Nursing Director, added: “It was a pleasure to share the stage with our colleagues and present the latest news around our nursing innovations at Diaverum; as an organisation that places True care at the core of everything we do, our dedication to driving innovation that further enhances the lives of our patients is what steers our work and it’s incredibly inspiring to share this with our peers.”
Diaverum was a key participant throughout this Conference, with extensive research from within our Corporate Nursing teams and Country teams (comprised of Albania, North Macedonia, Portugal and Romania) having being presented.
This year’s conference theme was “50 years of Commitment in Kidney Care", in honour of the event’s landmark half-century anniversary. Among the tributes to this date was the presentation of a commemorative book entitled ‘The History of EDTNA / ERCA: 50 years of caring together’, co-edited by Maria Arminda Tavares, Head Nurse with Diaverum Portugal and ExCo member of the EDTNA.
