treatments and technologies'

Friday 7th October 2022 09.30–17.15
The King’s Fund, Deans Mews entrance, 11–13 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0AN


We hope you will join us for our popular 17th Annual Scientific Meeting which we are delighted is able to return to a face-to-face meeting in London this year.

The meeting will promote and share academic interest across the cardiorenal spectrum of disease taking in new targets, treatments and technologies in diabetes, heart failure, kidney transplantation, and chronic kidney disease.

State-of-the-art presentations with interactive discussion and case-based learning will be offered, with time to network in the breaks and visit our exhibition. After two years of holding virtual meetings we are looking forward to seeing everyone in person.

Places for healthcare professionals are limited and will go fast!

Is it for me?

Our meetings are aimed at healthcare professionals and are aimed at anyone treating the cardiorenal patient particularly those working in heart failure, cardiology, nephrology, diabetes, lipids, endocrinology, care of the elderly, general medicine, general practice, clinical pharmacy and allied disciplines.
Feedback from past delegates has been very positive with 98% of delegates at our last meeting saying the meeting was clinically excellent or good.

Accreditation

The Cardiorenal Forum will award 5 CPD credits for this meeting.
