The ISHD’s most ambitious effort has been to create an ISHD Hemodialysis University®, HDU, where clinical nephrologists can obtain the most up-to-date training and information regarding convective therapies, quotidian dialysis, and other state-of-the-art therapies.
The first HDU was launched in Chicago in 2012. Key topics presented included Mineral Bone Disorder: Vitamin D and Calcimimetics, Sodium and Volume Control , Mitigation of Cardiovascular Risk, and Home Hemodialysis.
After the success of HDU in Chicago in 2012, successive HDUs and Congresses have been held across the globe:
