Special Interest Groups

The Association for Nephrology Nurses established two Special Interest Groups in order to promote collaboration and networking between members and within special areas of interest. 

You must be a member of ANN UK to register your interest for either of our SIGs. 


If you would like to join either of the ANN UK Special Interest Groups, please email us at info@ann-uk.org 

ANN UK Renal Research Nurse Special Interest Group

Are you a new or experienced Renal Research Nurse, a Renal CNS with a research interest or a Nurse Researcher?

Want to join a network of Clinical Research Nurses and Nurse Researchers working within kidney care?

The aims of the group are to:

  • To develop and share best clinical and research practice
  • Inform & enhance the care of patients with kidney disease participating in research studies
  • Create a network to encourage collaborative working and career development

Chaired by Nicola Anderson, ANN UK executive board member and HEE/NIHR ICA Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow. 

ANN UK Home Haemodialysis Special Interest Group

Are you a haemodialysis nurse interested in identifying and supporting best practice for  Home Haemodialysis? The ANN UK Home Haemodialysis Special interest Group was set up in November 2018 by a  group of haemodialysis nurses to do exactly that! 

The aims of the group are to:

  • Identify, develop and clarify what is best practice in Home Haemodialysis
  • Provide recommendations for renal units to encourage a standard approach to facilitating utilisation of haemodialysis in the home
  • Create recommendations for nocturnal home haemodialysis
  • Create recommendations for solo home haemodialysis
  • Develop an home haemodialysis nurse training package
  • Work with other established special interest groups within the renal community e.g. BRS Vascular access

Chaired by Carol Rhodes, the Home Haemodialysis SIG are also currently working on producing Clinical Practice Recommendations for Nocturnal Home Haemodialysis.
