Recorded Lectures from the UK’s Top Nephrology Physicians

On 13 and 14 April 2013, Brenda Padilla and I were privileged to join in the SpR Club Spring Meeting 2013, a lively conference in which doctors working in various aspects of nephrology joined together to present their work. Many of these spoke of their work in other countries: Uganda, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Nepal. These talks were quite moving in their discussion of practice eagerly shared across borders and cultural divides. Other talks were of work more local but no less insightful and forward-looking in research and practice. We recorded the talks and present these here, and hope their online availability may open new doors for learning, research, collaboration, and discussion. -Terese Bird, Learning Technologist, Institute of Learning Innovation, University of Leicester
