Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is a great honour to invite you all to the 43rd EDTNA/ERCA International Conference that will take place in Riga, the capital city of Latvia, 6–9 September 2014.

The EDTNA/ERCA is a multi-disciplinary organisation and through the Scientific Programme we offer a significant and valuable contribution to the care given to those referred to our renal services. Patient-centred renal care is the focus of this year's Conference where important exchanges of information and experience will take place utilising the expertise of health care professionals, service leaders, academics, researchers, people with renal disease and industry partners who come together to share innovations and knowledge.

The Conference is a forum for sharing the best research and innovations in practice and helps in initiating and promoting quality renal research and practice around the world.

You will have the opportunity to visit an exciting renal exhibition covering the most up to date technology and research in renal care. We sincerely thank to all our industry partners for their generous support.

Riga has a special spirit which has developed out of history, tradition, art, architecture, culture and a sense of the finer things in life. We are sure, that you will avail yourselves of this opportunity to take in the unique atmosphere of this city.

We look forward welcoming you to the beautiful city of Riga!

Best wishes
