This would make a great CPE program because this information is utilized on a daily basis when working in the world of dialysis. Much of this information could be utilized inpatient and in ICU settings as well. This program will be very helpful for those looking to learn more about the nutritional care of a patient with kidney disease or those looking to further their knowledge and build upon their existing skills in the renal field!
