Gardener’s Grove 2023

Cultivating Large Pragmatic Trials to Improve Hemodialysis Care

March 27 – 30, 2023

The Gardener’s Grove Conference 2023 is a fully virtual conference focused on increasing knowledge and awareness of pragmatic large-scale randomized controlled trials (RCTs) embedded into routine hemodialysis care. This conference creates a space for patients, providers and healthcare policymakers to plant, cultivate and nurture support for new trial ideas.

Pragmatic RCTs are designed to evaluate treatments in real-world conditions to inform decision-making by patients, providers and healthcare policymakers. The healthcare system urgently needs researchers to conduct pragmatic trials in the hemodialysis setting to answer important practice-based and patient-oriented questions. These trials can be expedited with randomized designs and existing data registries.

Everyone is Welcome!

The Gardener’s Grove Conference will consist of structured presentations of proposed pragmatic RCTs embedded in hemodialysis care, facilitated group discussions, and expert panel feedback focused on providing meaningful advice that can be applied to improve the presented trials and nurture new ideas. Partnerships and promising trial ideas borne out of the conference will continue to be developed to support the implementation of future large-scale pragmatic RCTs in the hemodialysis setting.

Gardener’s Grove 2023 promises to be an exhilarating experience where trial ideas will blossom into impactful research findings!

Gardener’s Grove 2023 invites you to showcase your pragmatic trial ideas. During the conference, you will be given the opportunity to share your ideas with conference attendees and speakers. Opportunities may include a one-to-two-minute pitch delivered to attendees, a networking space to discuss your idea with others, and inclusion in the post-event newsletter.
