The learning content focuses on the two most common kidney conditions – acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Patients with these conditions are seen by clinical staff in a range of specialties. So, this programme is an invaluable and versatile learning resource for all practitioners working in medical, surgical or general practice areas.
On this programme, you can explore the causes, possible complications, treatment and management of AKI and CKD. Interactive features, such as videos, animations and self-assessment exercises, help you to build your learning and understanding on key themes.
Kidn-e offers excellent preparation for lectures and practical work – ensuring the best learning outcomes.
