Journal Club

Our CME team scans the literature and provides links to 3-5 relevant articles each month. Key papers (original articles or reviews) that are of particular relevance to our specialty are included. We will follow a ‘themed approach’ with relevant publications from each Working Group in turn. Here are some important papers on paediatric dialysis – we hope that you will find them useful, and consider them in your regular clinical practice.
