"The ERA/EDTA is a must for us as a global player. Europe is our strongest market in which we are growing rapidly both through acquisitions and the expansion of our service offering," said Dag Andersson, CEO and President of Diaverum. "Meeting with international healthcare companies and the best physicians worldwide is very important for us on our way to becoming an integrated renal patient care provider."

Christina Sterner, Chief Communications Officer at Diaverum, explained that at Diaverum the patients are "at the heart" of everything we do. "We care for our patients, both from a physical as well as an emotional point of view, and this is what we would like to show with our presence at the exhibition."

With 'Revitalising renal care', Diaverum is positioning itself as an interesting partner and excellent employer. "Our aim is to provide our patients with a warm and friendly atmosphere when visiting our clinics, and when leaving we hope they feel revitalised," said Sterner.

Diaverum will also present the preliminary results of ongoing scientific studies in the poster sessions at ERA/EDTA 2013. Professor Giovanni FM Strippoli, SVP Scientific Affairs at Diaverum, explained that the Diaverum scientific research agenda is based on the "needs and demands" of the patients, using a full array of epidemiology study designs including systematic reviews, cohort studies, qualitative research methods and other.

"Patients demand and deserve research on prevention, complications and symptoms, and particularly research that takes into consideration psychological factors as well as the well being of the entire body," Prof. Strippoli added.

The majority of the Diaverum posters at ERA/EDTA 2013 are focusing on the ORAL-D study, a multinational study, the largest worldwide, prospective cohort in design, exploring oral diseases in people on haemodialysis.

"This study looks at the prevalence of dental, periodontal, oral mucosa and salivary gland abnormalities as well as oral hygiene habits in people on haemodialysis," explained Prof. Strippoli. "Data on a study of correlates of depression in end-stage kidney disease and correlates of patient satisfaction from dialysis treatment will also be presented. All in all, this talks about high engagement and social responsibility by Diaverum staff in participating kidney centres, of which I am extremely proud."
