To promote a global interest in renal care by sharing knowledge and experience among our members
The European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/European Renal Care Association (EDTNA/ERCA) is a multidisciplinary organization for those working in renal care. The mission of the Association is about ‘achieving the best level of education, standards and research for all renal care professionals caring and supporting their patients and families around the world’. To be able to live up to this mission, we are a group of multidisciplinary professionals from different parts of the world. Many tasks are split and shared amongst us, enabling us to be stronger and to achieve our goals.
