The Cardiorenal Forum (CRF) is an independent group formed in 2006. The key objective of the group is to highlight the important clinical overlap that exists between patients presenting with a primary cardiovascular or renal problem. Our annual scientific meeting is our most important event to bring together all involved in the management of such patients to share ideas and learn more about how to deliver high quality care
