Stay up to date on evidence based guidelines for treatment of patients with chronic kidney disease with this new self-study course!
This course is only available as a “CPE Additional Certificate”. There is no hard copy book – the link to the “required reading” is included in the course document.
This course includes required reading of the National Kidney Foundations Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative Clinical Practice Guideline for Nutrition in CKD: 2020 Update published in the American Journal of Kidney Disease in 2020. The Guideline was developed as a joint effort with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
The long-awaited update to the Guideline provides revised evidence-based information which reflect changes in the standard of nutrition care for CKD. The Guideline serves as a template for nutrition recommendations for management of CKD and includes MNT recommendations on assessment, prevention, and treatment of protein-energy wasting, mineral and electrolyte disorders, and other metabolic co-morbid conditions associated with CKD. The information provided is necessary for RDNs and others that treat adults with CKD in a variety of settings.
A case study-based exam allows the learner to apply the information to clinical practice.
Purchasing Options: Course includes course document, link to PDF of the required reading, electronic test, and 1 certificate with passing grade.
