This webinar will dive into a series of resources that Dr. Micheli (Mike) Bevilacqua and his team at BC Renal have developed in British Columbia for ADPKD care. These resources are to help with delivering more tailored services to ADPKD patients in kidney clinics. The goal is to put tools in place so that all kidney clinics can offer ADPKD specific care, supported by a network of clinicians around the province. Dr. Micheli (Mike) Bevilacqua will explain how their plan was developed, how it will be implemented, and what they have learned so far. Although this webinar relates to patient care in British Columbia, the information and resources shared will be of value to patients nation-wide.
We hope you can join us!
