Join us online!
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 announce the ongoing COVID-19 circumstances has required us to innovate to ensure the provision of our Annual Meeting. The prevailing restrictions on travel and size of gatherings will require, for the first time in the history of the ASM, an Online Forum to replace the traditional Meeting.
The online ASM will take place at the end of November – beginning of December 2020 and will be complemented by the virtual 2-day Nephrology and Transplantation Update Course.
This history making forum will maintain many of the aspects so important to you, our members, when attending the ASM. It will provide opportunities to hear from presenters but also to network with fellow professionals and industry suppliers. These aspects are why we are continuing with the 2020 event online, rather than cancel outright, as many other organisations have done. We will still provide a valuable learning and networking experience for you!
Our 2020 Scientific Program Themes will remain as listed below;

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 have been 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.
Through the ANZSN, members support a range of research, education and clinical care initiatives to promote evidence based practice and quality outcomes for patients in Australia, New Zealand and our region.
