About the PRN

The Nephrology PRN is a group of pharmacists interested in practice and research related to patients with renal disease.

Current activities of the PRN include fostering a growing relationship with the National Kidney Foundation in terms of pharmacist membership; programming and committee involvement; communicating the role of pharmacists in the care of dialysis patients to those working with the ESRD program at the Health Care Financing Administration; providing a network for research collaboration among PRN members, and establishing a communication link among pharmacists working in this area.
