MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT FOR YEAR 2024
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The year 2024 marks a very special year for MSN as it celebrates its 40th anniversary since its founding in 1984. For the past 40 years, MSN has made impressive milestones and contributions led by the various past MSN presidents. MSN achievements includes our national Malaysian Dialysis Transplant Renal Registry (MDTR) which we are proud of and the data being cited by international professional bodies. The hard work put up together by the past NRR chairs and currently headed by Dr Sunita Bavanandan, Dr Hooi Lai Seong with the NRR committee and staff had made the latest updated report available and uploaded on the MSN website in a timely manner. Not to forget, this will not materialise without the data submission from the Source Data Providers (SDP) which MSN would like to acknowledge and appreciate. The 2022 report is available to be viewed on MSN website and the 2023 data collection is actively ongoing.
Collects information on patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) on renal replacement therapy (RRT).
Intended to be a prelude to establishing a broader registry for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
