Dear colleagues and friends,

It is my pleasure and honour to invite you to the Asian Nephrology Nursing Symposium 2017 (ANNS 2017) to be held in Hong Kong on 9th and 10th September 2017. The Asian Nephrology Nursing Symposium (ANNS) is a biennial nephrology nursing symposium first held in Taiwan, then in Japan and Shanghai. In 2017, the ANNS will be hosted by the Hong Kong Association of Renal Nurses (HKARN), one of the institutional members.

The ANNS 2017 will provide you with an excellent platform to discuss the challenging renal nursing issues, to learn about the best practices and the most update development in renal care.

The theme for ANNS 2017 is “Optimizing Renal Care” where renowned speakers, both local and from abroad, will walk with us through a number of important renal nursing issues based on evidence and expertise.

Apart from the workshops and seminars, the conference also provides participants with a valuable opportunity for professional networking and collaboration. Overseas participants may also take this opportunity to explore the beauties and attractions in Hong Kong – a dynamic and vibrant city that fuses rich Chinese tradition and modern Western influence.

I look forward to seeing you at ANNS 2017.

LAW Man Ching
The President
Hong Kong Association of Renal Nurses(HKARN)
Conference President,
The Asian Nephrology Nursing Symposium 2017
