The 56th Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology ASM and Nephrology Transplantation Update Course will take place from 28th August to 1st September ONLINE

The online format allows unlimited attendee numbers and a much higher capacity for presenters to participate in the program.  In addition, the virtual format allows sessions to be easily recorded for on-demand viewing post-ASM, so attendees can revisit missed presentations at their leisure and in the comfort of their own home or office.  The live ASM days will be held on Monday through to Wednesday to Thursday, preceded by the two day Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course (Saturday & Sunday).

The Scientific Program and Awards Committee is working tirelessly to produce an engaging and memorable program that explored the current and emerging research in kidney care in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. We look forward to hosting you in 2021!

ANZSN President

Thank you for attending the 2020 online meeting.

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology’s President, the Scientific Program and Award Committee (SPAC) and the Local Organising Committee, we wish to thank everyone who attended the 2020 ANZSN ASM. For the first time in the history of the ASM, an Online Forum replaced the traditional Meeting.

The online ASM took place at the end of November – beginning of December 2020 and was complemented by the virtual 2-day Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course.

This history making forum maintained many of the aspects so important to you, our members, when attending the ASM. It provided opportunities to hear from presenters but also to network with fellow professionals and industry suppliers. These aspects were the reason we continued with the 2020 ASM online, rather than cancel outright, as many other organisations did.

We hope you enjoyed the 55th ANZSN ASM and we look forward to meeting again in 2021!

Join the conversation!

The Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology recognises that urgent action is needed within the nephrology community to help minimise the impacts of climate change, sustainably manage natural resources, and reduce and manage waste.  It is committed to embedding environmental sustainability into its operations, including holding conferences in ways that maximally benefit the host community and all involved while minimising environmental harm. Toward this aim, and with the help of the Green Nephrology Action Team (GNAT), a working group of the ANZSN, convened in partnership with Renal Society of Australasia, Kidney Health Australia and Kidney Health New Zealand, a range of green initiatives were incorporated into the 2020 meeting. We thank you for your support of these and welcome feedback on improvements that might be made in future meetings.
