As new technologies and developments are constantly
providing the world with new ways to access information, cyberNephrologyTM will
be a constantly evolving resource for patients, families, communities, and renal health
care professions. Some of the programs envisioned for the near future are CD-ROM
educational programs, educational programs conducted over the Internet, and electronic
newsletters and educational materials for patients and medical professionals using
Internet and CD-ROM technology.
With generous corporate support, cyberNephrologyTM will become an integral
part in the set of front-line tools for patients, caregivers, and the public in the fight
against kidney and urological diseases, which together enable the NKF to achieve its
vision of making lives better.
