I feel this would make an excellent CPE program because it uses very challenging, but realistic case study examples to utilize critical thinking and problem solving for a dietitian working in a CKD or Dialysis setting. This CPE program is short, but packs in great examples of how to manage a patient with CKD or ESRD and does a great job referencing the recommended reading material as well as updated guidelines. I would recommend this course for a good review for a dialysis/CKD dietitian or someone who aspires to learn more on this subject matter!
