Full Text: The vascular access coordinators from the Manitoba Renal Program (MRP) held a Renal Access Day Symposium on October 15, 2011. The Renal Access Day Symposium was a great success with 154 attendees from all over the province of Manitoba. Topics included everything relating to dialysis access -- tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) usage, access issues, and the future of dialysis access. We were fortunate to have a wealth of presenters: our province's own vascular surgeons, radiologists, nephrologists, and nurses who specialize in this area. The feedback from attendees was more than positive, making this a symposium that will return every two to three years. Funding for this symposium was provided by the Manitoba Renal Program and the St. Boniface Hospital Renal Program.
