Guidelines

ERA-EDTA Guidelines

The ERA-EDTA Council has nominated an advisory board to discuss and define the future of European nephrology recommendations and guidance. The 21 members of this board met for the first time in January 2008, in Paris. Due to a substantial change in philosophy (see Zoccali C. et al: European Best Practice Quo Vadis? From European Best Practice Guidelines to European Renal Best Practice), it was decided to change the name of the initiative from European Best Practice Guidelines (EBPG) to European Renal Best Practice (ERBP). ERBP’s main purpose is to help to increase the visibility and implementation of European Nephrology recommendations and guidance and to enhance the quality of European and worldwide nephrology practice
