Event Details

Overview, see brochure for more info!
Based on patient, expert faculty feedback, and literature reviews, leaders in the field determine that the transition from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to dialysis can be eased by novel management of both CKD and dialysis patient. Topics include transition of care, home therapies, management of complications of ESRD and the artificial kidney.

 Target Audience
This educational activity is designed to improve knowledge, competence and performance of US Nephrologists, Dialysis Care Providers (Administrators, Physician Assistants (PA’s), Nurse Practitioners (NP’s) Registered Nurses (RN’s), Patient Care Technician’s (PCT’s), and Machine Care Technicians (MCT’s) in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of the dialysis patient.


Objectives
Participants of this activity should be able to: 
 Increase their knowledge in new biomarkers to identify rapid progressors to help transition from CKD to dialysis and enhance the maturation of an AV access.

  • Outline new regulatory anemia requirements for the management of dialysis patients within quality initiative program from CMS, and ethical stresses for physicians in managing such changes. Help providers find alternative solutions to manage anemia of large populations with the help of new technology.
  • Familiarize oneself with the data on frequent dialysis modalities and home dialysis therapies. Understand basic concepts of blood pressure management and management of metabolic bone disease in ESRD patients with newer standards and with newer technology.
  • Delineate the mechanisms to enhance the growth of peritoneal dialysis programs and help identify the characteristic of patients that are best suited to accept this form of treatment.
