159957 - GPCE - Detecting and managing chronic kidney disease ALM

  • : Online


Effective management of chronic kidney disease (CKD) helps to prolong the decline of kidney function and reduce complications associated with end stage kidney disease. CKD management also addresses comorbidities such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. This active learning module uses didactic presentations and interactive case studies to highlight these often complex and inter-related issues and help you to effectively manage your patients with CKD and comorbidities. 

Relevance to General Practice

The GPCE offers GP delegates over 50 topic choices over three days. The subjects span many therapeutic areas allowing GPs to self-select the topics of most interest to the individual and their practice.

Learning outcomes
  • Define the role of the GP in detecting and managing CKD in the primary care setting
  • Outline the goals for best practice management of CKD, with regard to comorbidities, acute kidney presentations, nephrotic syndrome and hypertension
  • Determine when to refer patients with CKD to a nephrologist according to the recommended clinical indicators
  • Implement a practice-based system, for patient safety, to identify patients at higher risk of CKD for a kidney health check
