156854 - Closing the gap: Addressing chronic kidney disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

  • : Online

This activity will discuss the guidelines for screening, preventive and management activities for chronic kidney disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Relevance to General Practice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a greatly increased prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and are approximately five times more likely than non-Indigenous Australians to develop end-stage kidney failure. However, if early-stage CKD is detected and managed appropriately, the deterioration of kidney function can be reduced and may even be reversible in some cases. 
General practitioners are best placed to conduct simple screening activities and detect CKD early, and this activity will focus on screening procedures for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It will also look at working together with patients to address modifiable risks and institute appropriate monitoring and management with consideration of the psycho-social context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Learning outcomes
  • Identify patients at risk of CKD
  • Outline the preventative strategies available to those at risk
  • Explain appropriate management of CKD that takes into account the psycho-social context
