DESCRIPTION: This review will provide a general review and update of topics pertinent to clinical practices in nephrology. Every year, emerging scientific data alter the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management strategies for patients with kidney disease, creating gaps in practitioners’ knowledge, competencies, and performance, resulting in less than optimal patient outcomes. This activity will include experts that will provide a review of the most up-to-date data and analyze for implications in clinical practice.

By attending, you will be able to:

  • Summarize data on strategies for the assessment and management of hypertension based on the most current published clinical practice guidelines.
  • Integrate obesity prevention and treatment strategies into management protocols for overweight patients with kidney disease.
  • Describe the management strategies for assessing and treating various glomerular diseases and addressing the associated side effects of therapy.
  • Describe the pitfalls of dialytic therapies that can lead to serious hemodialysis line infections or peritoneal dialysis related complications that can lead to failure of those modalities of renal replacement therapy.
  • Apply immunologic findings, pathology protocols, and data from kidney transplant registries to improve outcomes in kidney transplant patients.

Who should attend?

This activity is designed for nephrologists, cardiologists, intensive care specialists, internists, PAs and other practicing health care professionals who desire an update on pathogenesis and treatment of kidney diseases, hypertension, fluid and electrolyte disorders, acid-base disturbances, end stage renal failure, critical care nephrology, transplant, and related conditions.
