- Attendees will be expected to critically evaluate advances in the field of Nephrology by reviewing studies such as SPRINT for HTN1,4 and improvement in immunosuppression for kidney transplant.6These studies demonstrate safe and effective treatments for kidney related disease and compare outcomes to current standard of care so that clinical practice can be improved.
- Apply newly obtained clinical knowledge to enhance patient care in Nephrology and use this new knowledge to create quality indicators such as control of BP in the CKD population and length of kidney transplant graft survival. These quality indicators can be used monitored to evaluate for performance below national levels (the standard) that would indicate specific areas for improvement.
