Free Webinar Kidney Health Australia: Kidney Failure: integrating primary and tertiary care
Kidney Health Australia are delivering a free webinar on ‘Kidney Failure: integrating primary and tertiary care‘
Join Kidney Health Australia and Assoc. Prof Katz, senior staff specialist and nephrologist at St George Hospital Renal Department.
Early, effective referral to nephrology services is associated with positive patient outcomes. This case study-based activity will briefly outline medications required to slow progression of CKD. It will delve into when to refer and what comprises an effective referral to nephrology services. Kidney failure treatment options, particularly dialysis and the shared-decision pathway that can bring focus to this important process will also be discussed.
