Dear Colleague,

We are preparing for the upcoming First Parc Taulí International Vascular Access Symposium, and we would like to invite you to share our experience in Sabadell, Barcelona, in April 2014.

The aim of the Symposium is to provide comprehensive coverage of the field of vascular access in dialysis patients, with a focus on the issues that are most relevant in daily clinical practice. The Symposium has three main objectives: to review the current state of the evidence in main issues related to vascular access, to highlight the trending topics, and to give professionals of different areas of interest the opportunity to present their experiences with abstract submissions. The perspective is based on a multidisciplinary approach, with the participation of nephrology, vascular surgery, interventional radiology and nursing

To encourage multidisciplinary interactions, the main topics will be covered in roundtables with invited lectures, panel discussions, and poster sessions.

We also offer a pre-symposium workshop, the fourth Theoretical Update and Practical Workshop in Ultrasound and Multidisciplinary Approach to Vascular Access. The workshop will provide a practical review of the use of ultrasound in vascular access, with hands-on sessions with patients and simulation models. The objective of this course is to help specialists involved in the care of vascular access who have some experience in ultrasound consolidate and improve their skills in vascular access, from diagnosing problems in arteriovenous fistulas to placing catheters under ultrasound guidance.

2014 Symposium Topic Highlights:

  • Vascular access creation: from preoperative evaluation to surgery
  • Vascular access surveillance
  • Treatment of complications: interventional radiology and surgery
  • Catheters
  • Nursing care of vascular accesses
  • Quality indicators

We promise to provide a comfortable environment for learning and sharing your experience, and we are sure that you will gain a better understanding of the multidisciplinary approach to vascular access in dialysis patients.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sabadell,
