SCM23 Abstract Submissions Open August 30, 2022
NKF is pleased to announce the transition to electronic-only publication for the Physician, Nephrology Nurse and Technician, and Renal Dietitian abstracts.
All SCM abstracts will be published together as an e-only Supplement into the April issue of AJKD, allowing viewers to easily navigate through the abstracts.
This transition will increase visibility for all authors, while making it easier for learners and attendees to locate abstracts based on topic. Nephrology Social Work abstracts will still publish in the spring issue of JNSW.
In compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation FD (Fair Disclosure), the accepted abstracts are made available to the public on the NKF website and are published in AJKD, ACKD, JRN, or JNSW (dependent on discipline) in advance of the meeting. Thus, the first release of the abstracts is a public release. Coverage of additional research being presented at the NKF Spring Clinical Meetings is under embargo until 8am on April 12, 2023.
Academic institutions, private organizations, and companies with products whose value may be influenced by information contained in an abstract may issue a press release to coincide with the availability of an abstract. However, the NKF continues to require that information that goes beyond that contained within the abstract, e.g., discussion of the abstract done as part of a scientific presentation, is to be embargoed until the start of the Meetings. Violation of this policy may result in the abstract being withdrawn from the meeting and other measures deemed appropriate. Journalists failing to abide by the embargo may have their press credentials revoked.
Abstracts are presented on posters, highlighting critical issues such as acute kidney injury, ICU medicine,
transplantation, hemodialysis, diabetes, and hypertension, among many other topics.
