Program Description: 

The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) has a mission to be the national leader in providing high quality healthcare. One of the ways that we are doing this is to provide high quality continuing medical education (CME) to our faculty; this includes presentations in the field of Nephrology. Our education al topics focus on outcomes research in chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease, delivery of care in dialysis units and chronic kidney disease clinics, emerging data on new treatments compared to current standard of care, continuing review of kidney biopsy pathology, and basic science research that may become future therapeutics. Continuing education presentations will include the pathogenesis, diagnoses, and treatment of kidney diseases including but not limited to the following conditions of: hypertension, chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, kidney transplant and immunosuppression, glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, electrolytes disorders and metabolic acidosis and alkalosis. Specific focus includes renal pathology for diagnosis.

Learning objectives: 

Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

  • Continuing education presentations will include the pathogenesis, diagnoses, and treatment of kidney diseases including but not limited to the following conditions of: hypertension, chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury, kidney transplant and immunosuppression, glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, electrolytes disorders and metabolic acidosis and alkalosis.
  • Attendees will be expected to critically evaluate advances in the field of Nephrology by reviewing studies such as SPRINT for HTN
  • 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.
