126303 - Chronic Kidney Disease: The Silent Killer

  • : Online

This ALM activity we aim to review normal renal function, the pathophysiology of CKD and the latest EBM recommendations in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of CKD, helping general practitioners keep up to date with current treatment options and their application. 

Relevance to General Practice

In 2014-15 there were 203 400 Australians experiencing kidney disease according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. It also showed that for every patient that is diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) another 9 individuals remain cognizant to having the condition. The asymptomatic nature even when 80-90% of renal function has deteriorated in addition to lack of public awareness are believed to greatly contributed to the status quo. 

Kidney conditions are the 10th leading cause of death in Australia and CKD is a major risk factor for coronary events and all-cause mortality. It is critical that we detect and diagnose CKD in the first stages of its progression because kidney function can be restored by as much as 50% and in cases fully reversed if detected early and managed correctly.

Learning outcomes
  • Review and develop deeper integration and consolidation of physiological mechanisms underlying the symptoms and signs of CKD
  • Review and develop deeper integration and consolidation of physiological mechanisms underlying the causes of CKD
  • Communicate with patients, family members and carers how health can be optimised and maintained
  • Identify patients at risk of developing CKD or in early stages of CKD and construct a prevention strategy
  • Identify and manage potential critical or critical incidents in CKD patients.
