COURSE DESCRIPTION

New diagnostic and therapeutic tools have emerged in the management of patients with kidney diseases. This course is designed to provide the practicing Nephrologist with a complete understanding of the optimal management of chronic kidney diseases. The focus of this course will be to discuss the pathophysiologic and clinical advances in the major areas of Nephrology including glomerular disease, fluid and electrolyte disorders, hypertension, dialysis, and renal transplantation. Well recognized medical complications and recommendations for optimal care will be discussed. Both case discussions and the audience response system will be used to promote participant education.

The material will be presented in several formats including lectures, case-based workshops and interactive sessions that will include the use of the Audience Response System in which Nephrology and recertification board type questions will be used to highlight important clinical issues of diagnosis and therapy. Most days there will also be several "Meet the Professor" sessions at lunchtime, which will allow attendees to meet in smaller groups with members of the faculty.

OBJECTIVE

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the diagnosis and treatment of electrolyte disorders including hyponatremia and hypernatremia
  • Outline treatment recommendations for glomerular diseases
  • Describe optimal treatment options for hypertension
  • Discuss how to appropriately manage acute and chronic kidney disease
  • Recognize issues in dialysis and transplantation

You will take home:

  • An understanding of the clinically important advances that have been made in common diseases
  • An awareness of areas of strength and weakness
  • Recommendations for optimal management of many common diseases
  • A complete syllabus and CD-ROM that will allow you to review material at home
