Evidence-Based Medicine Sir Austin Bradford Hill, British Researcher: "All scientific work is incomplete- whether it be observational or experimental. All scientific work is liable to be upset or modified by advancing knowledge. This does not confer upon a freedom to ignore the knowledge we already have, or to postpone the action that it appears to demand at a given time.

9 NKF cyber. Nephrology - A remarkable NKF innovation! n In 1996 an NKF think tank recommended the creation of NKF cyber. Nephrology, initiated in April 1997. n Remarkably insightful, no other voluntary heath organization has had similar technology impact. Earlier Internet initiatives in other health disciplines dermatology, anesthesiology, and nursing - were individual or institutional efforts. n Now as a consequence of this NKF initiative, nephrology has caught up to and surpassed these other disciplines, now has Internet resources superior to those in any other area!
10 All the More Remarkable Considering Nephrology’s size vs. all of Medicine n There are more than 800, 000 physicians in the US and only about 5, 000 are practicing renal medicine, so nephrologists represents only about 0. 6% of total US physicians. n On the other hand, the cost of end stage kidney disease care is very high: 18 billion US dollars per annum in public and private money (source USRDS). This is nearly 2% of the 1 trillion dollar total annual health care budget of the US and rising rapidly.
11 Unique Resources for Patients Not Found In other Specialties n NEPHKIDS - For parents of children with renal disease, moderated by pediatric nephrologist. n KIDNEYDISEASE - For adult patients with kidney disease, moderated by 10 nephrologists all over the world! 45 Email discussion groups in all connecting more than 5000 health professionals , patients, and patient’s families.
