CKDinform: Early Detection and Prevention
This 3-hour CME/CE symposium focuses on the unique role that primary care practitioners (PCPs) play in managing CKD patients. The burden of CKD to the population, modifiable CKD risk factors, screening methods, and interpretation of test results will be discussed. The use of GFR and albuminuria in CKD detection will also be covered. Evidence-based treatment recommendations and management plans for CKD will be presented. This program will also address the need for timely referral to nephrologists, in addition to the importance of patient education and counseling. Case-based questions are also included.
