Nephrology - 2020 is an accredited Continuing Medical Education program sponsored by Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. This comprehensive course will provide you with important updates and advances in the diagnosis and management of patients with kidney diseases. Clinical advances in the major areas of Nephrology, including: glomerular disease, fluid and electrolyte disorders, hypertension, dialysis, renal transplantation, and other complications will be discussed. www.nephrologyboston.com
Many practicing nephrologists and physicians find it difficult to keep up with the rapid scientific and technological advances in renal care because medicine is changing at a faster pace than ever before. As busy clinicians, we need to stay current in order to optimize patient care and improve outcomes.
Presenters will also discuss diagnostic testing, well-recognized medical complications, evidence-based treatment plans and provide specific management strategies and recommendations to optimize care. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the latest “best practices” and enhance your clinical skills. Both new and returning attendees will benefit from the comprehensive curriculum.
This CME course will address pathophysiologic and clinical issues in the major areas of nephrology, including:
• Glomerular disease
• Acute renal failure
• Renal transplantation
• Immunosuppressive management
• Pregnancy and renal disease
• Acid-base and fluid and electrolyte disorders
• Potassium balance
• Renal imaging
• Bone mineral disorders
• Lupus nephritis
• Diuretic resistance
• Renal stones
• Polycystic kidney disease
• Genetic renal diseases
• Cardiorenal and hepatorenal syndrome
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Discuss how to approach patients with acid-base and electrolyte disturbances and manage their care
• Define hypertension treatment goals and management for different populations
• Review strategies for diagnosing and managing acute kidney injury
• Assess new developments to reduce the risk of chronic kidney disease progression
