HDCN (Hypertension, Dialysis and Clinical Nephrology) is a subscription-based information service that offers readers a selection of recent articles, abstracts, and lectures in the field of nephrology and hypertension that are of special clinical importance and interest.
on HDCN is divided into a FREE ZONE and a KEY ZONE.
The FREE ZONE content is limited to archived lectures from symposia where a sponsor has defrayed the cost of posting and maintaining the content. Registration is free, and the user chooses his or her own username and password.
The KEY ZONE contains content from various meetings, including the Renal Research Institute's Advances in CKD, the Brigham Nephrology Board Review Course, the American Society for Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology, and the American Society for Hypertension. Also, the key zone gives access to a monthly list of links to selected articles which have been chosen by our editorial board as being of particular importance, as well as to a monthly selection of abstracts from the American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week.
You may choose either subscription level when filling out this form. If you have selected a KEY ZONE subscription, you will be taken to a payment form.
A personal subscription to the KEY zone for 1 year costs $95.00. A 2-month access period can be purchased for $45.00, and a 2-week access for $20.00. After a paid subscription expires, a KEY ZONE username and password revert to FREE ZONE access only. Group subscriptions are available for an annual cost of $495.00.
