Welcome to the CANSW website, and thank you for your interest!

As Nephrology social workers, we recognize that Chronic Kidney Disease is a complicated illness, affecting all aspects of a patient’s life and impacting families. When you start working in what you quickly realize is a very specialized field, it is often overwhelming. Being able to connect with a group of colleagues who generously share resources, expertise and knowledge, can be invaluable to you while you’re beginning your practice and as you develop expertise.

CANSW is a vital community, a group of nephrology social workers from across Canada, dedicated to providing support, information and resources to one another in order to provide the best possible care to our patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, and their families.

Once again, we’re glad you’re here and we hope you’ll join us!
