Final Conference (Virtual Event)
SCOPE project coordinator and consortium partners are pleased to invite you to the “SCREENING for CKD among OLDER people across EUROPE” Final Conference (Virtual Event) that will take place on Wednesday November 25th, 2020.

The SCOPE project investigated whether and to which extent currently available screening methods may identify older people at risk of worsening kidney function, thanks to the implementation of an observational prospective study with a 2-year follow up, recruiting 2435 older people aged 75+ in seven Italy, Austria, Israel, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Poland, and Germany and Israel.
The SCOPE Final Conference, which is organized in close cooperation with the project partners: Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam, Medical University of Graz, Austria, Servicio Madrileño de Salud, Fundación para la Investigación Biomédica del Hospital Clínico San Carlos, and Institut Català de la Salut – Hospital Universitari de Bellvitge, Spain, University of Lodz, Poland, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany and Uppsala University, Sweden, will give new insights into screening strategies in a population at high risk of developing kidney function decline like older patients, presenting final results from the study. In particular, it will shed light on the first findings from cross-sectional analysis published in the BMC Geriatrics Journal and on the MOOC developed during the SCOPE project.
The conference will be held in English and to participate you will have to fill in the registration form where you will have to specify your name, the organization you represent, your function and email address.
