KidneyWise: An Innovative Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinical Toolkit For Primary Care Providers

Friday, November 24
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Want to become an expert in managing chronic kidney disease (CKD) in primary care? Come and hear about the KidneyWise Clinical Toolkit, a practical, evidence-based, easy-to-use resource to help identify and manage patients at risk for, or with, CKD. This disease affects approximately 2 million Canadians and is a recognized risk factor for all-cause mortality. Patients who progress to end-stage renal disease experience significant morbidity and a reduced quality of life. The KidneyWise toolkit contains a practical clinical algorithm, an outpatient nephrology referral form and an interactive app that can be used at the point of care to improve the early detection and prevention of progression of CKD. These materials will be distributed and reviewed in detail during this session. An interactive case presentation will also be used to highlight the key take-home messages.
