EDTNA/ERCA Webinar in Greek: World Kidney Day
March 14, 2024
The Greek webinar on World Kidney Day, spearheaded by Dr.Petsios, Assistant Professor at the Nursing School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, served as a pivotal platform for advancing dialogue and action around this year's theme "Advancing equitable access to care and optimal medication practice." Against the backdrop of global health disparities, Dr.Petsios' compelling presentation delved into the multifaceted challenges facing individuals with kidney-related conditions, particularly in accessing high-quality care and optimal medication management.

With a wealth of expertise in research, Dr.Petsios adeptly navigated through the intricate landscape of kidney health, addressing not only clinical aspects but also cultural and socio-economic factors that often exacerbate disparities in healthcare access. By shining a spotlight on the critical intersection of equity, access, and medication practices, he underscored the urgent need for systemic reforms and innovative strategies to ensure that every individual receives timely and equitable care, regardless of their socio-economic status or geographic location.

Moreover, Dr.Petsios' emphasis on optimal medication practices underscored the pivotal role of nursing professionals in advocating for continuous education and trainings, evidence-based interventions and personalized treatment approaches. Through his insightful analysis and practical recommendations, he empowered attendees to champion initiatives aimed at enhancing medication adherence, minimizing disparities in access to essential medications, and fostering multidisciplinary collaboration to optimize patient outcomes.

As the webinar concluded, attendees were not only enlightened but also inspired to take concrete steps towards advancing kidney health equity in their respective spheres of influence.
