Kidney Failure: integrating primary and tertiary care

07:30 pm 17th October 2023

Did you know that about 50% of referrals to nephrology services do not meet Australian nephrology referral guidelines?

Early, effective referral to nephrology services is associated with positive patient outcomes. This case study-based activity will briefly outline medications required to slow progression of CKD. It will delve into when to refer and what comprises an effective referral to nephrology services. Optimal management of some CKD stage 5 complications will be addressed, along with kidney failure treatment options, particularly dialysis, and the shared-decision pathway that can bring focus to this important process.

Time: 7:30pm - 8:30pm

CPD: RACGP/ACRRM EA hours – 1 (pending approval).
