First Patients Education Conference

Our first Patient Education Conference: Friday, 17 May 2019 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Village Hotel in Swansea.

This conference is free to attend and is open to all kidney patients, friends and families.  The aim is to educate and advise kidney patients on how to lead a better quality of life through lifestyle choices.  Guest speakers will include clinicians and patients who will cover topics such as transplant and fistula, treatment advice, emotional support, physical activities and dealing with loneliness.

There will also be a number of exhibitors attending to offer advice and support to renal patients in areas such as welfare, funding for repairs to the home, planning holidays and employment.

Says Fund Manager, Joanne Popham, “We have been planning this patient education conference for well over a year and we are delighted to be able to announce the date and confirm the content. Through our work with the Welsh Renal Network and other organisations, we have been able to bring together a range of speakers, including clinicians and patients who understand at first hand the issues facing renal patients and how to make their quality of life better.”
