Your confirmed speakers to date:
Collette completed her nurse training in 1988 at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham. Once qualified, she started working on the renal medical ward. It was here where Collette gained experience in many aspects of renal care. She was then inspired to move to the haemodialysis unit caring for both chronic and acute patients.
After 11 years in which time Collette was now a junior sister on the chronic haemodialysis unit, she moved to the renal community team. The team was made up of 4 nurses whose role was to provide pre dialysis education, conservative management care and home haemodialysis. By 2010 it was evident that each area was getting bigger and harder to manage effectively. For the service to continue to offer excellent supportive care a review led to a division in the team which meant a dedicated service for both pre dialysis and home haemodialysis.
By March 2010, Collette’s role had become solely home haemodialysis. The dedicated role enabled focus and drive for the programme which in turn led to the expansion of their home haemodialysis programme.
The programme at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is diverse in many ways and the patient group reflects that of many of their dialysis centres. It’s this ever changing challenge that keeps Collette driven.
After speciality training in England and New Zealand, Dr. Lambie was appointed as a consultant nephrologist in the UK in 2011 and he is currently a Reader in Renal Medicine at Keele University. His current roles include Training Programme Director for the Specialised Foundation Programme in the West Midlands, and Co-chair of the Midlands Kidney Network and he teaches on a variety of national and international courses.
His research spans health services, translational and epidemiological approaches to dialysis medicine, including the role of inflammation and peritoneal membrane in patient outcomes, and he is a co-investigator in Inter-CEPt, national CI for P-DOPPS in the UK and co-lead UK investigator in the POSIBIL6-ESKD and ELIXIR trials. He is co-chair of the KRUK Dialysis Research and Innovation Network, and co-chair of the UKKA Home Dialysis Special Interest Group.

"Forum was managed extremely well, and very professional"IAPT National Networking Online Forum 2021 - 21st January 2021
“I am sure like everyone else I was apprehensive with going online, not sure how we could network, the ability for all participant's to participate and the quality of the presentations - all my fears were diminished this turned in to be a great day, networking, leading and sharing still occurred and links still formed. The presentations were excellent and the quality of the forum and set up great and so easy to follow and timing excellent.”Reduce Paediatric Emergency Attendance Online Conference – 8th October 2020
“The conference has been far more engaging than in a conference centre. This I think is because of the ability to participate in chat throughout and the use of the breakout discussions.” “Excellent day! Organisation was great - loved the break out rooms for chat. Virtual chat added another really useful way to interact during the day, which isn't available to us at the physical conferences.”Leading Change in Clinical Coding Online Conference - 11th September 2020
"Very informative, lots of opportunity for discussions and very well organised virtually"Providing Support for Children on Long Term Ventilation - Tuesday 9th March 2021
"I enjoyed the group chats networking listening to others experiences, I also like that there was a lead on each group so the chats were influenced and no awkward silences that can occur on web meets. I thought the larger talks were really good and easy to listen to."Modernising Outpatient Services Online Conference – 16th September 2020
“This is my first experience of an online conference and thoroughly enjoyed it. Wasn't sure what to expect.
