Kidney Health Professionals Working Group Publishes Paper Encouraging Nursing Leadership

ISN Kidney Health Professionals Working Group (KHP WG) members Rachel Walker and Paul Bennett submitted a paper that has been published as an editorial letter in the Renal Society of Australasia Journal 2020.

The KHP WG is a comprehensive and complementary nursing and allied health professional group formed by ISN in 2017 to address the gap in the non-nephrologist workforce and to encourage nursing involvement in program delivery and development.

The paper addresses the urgent need to develop nephrology nursing leadership within low- and middle-income countries to improve the management, safety, and quality of kidney care.

The development of a strong renal nursing and allied health workforce will increase the capacity to better meet the needs of people with kidney disease worldwide.
