Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a potentially life-threatening condition, associated with premature mortality, decreased quality of life, and increased healthcare expenditures globally. The natural progression of CKD is towards Established Renal Failure, which warrants renal replacement therapy such as dialysis or transplantation to preserve life. Prevention and early detection is the key to management and to reduce the incidence of the disease.
The module is designed to enable healthcare professionals working across a range of practice settings to further develop their knowledge and skills in renal care. It will provide a greater understanding of the management of the patient with renal care needs and thus enable the delivery of holistic renal care.
This is a theory only CPD module and you are not required to work within a specialised renal setting to participate. Participation is open to any registered healthcare professional who care for people with renal disease. All learning is online and students can participate in the module from any geographical location.
