Maintenance Dialysis

Course Description

Treatment options for patients with stage 5 CKD are always evolving. Research findings challenge old paradigms and introduce new concepts, technologic developments offer new opportunities and therapeutic options, and additional financial constraints push us toward providing high-value care. This program critically reviews established norms and explores emerging concepts in dialysis care. It synthesizes new and old data to help clinicians incorporate these findings into their daily practice, with a focus on case-based approaches. This year’s program features two new panel-based sessions (interventional nephrology and cardiovascular complications) that offer the opportunity for audience interaction with the experts. Debates are used to engage the audience and highlight legitimate differences in approach. Underlying physiology and pathophysiology are discussed, along with potential therapeutic interventions such as new developments in peritoneal dialysis, patient-centered care, and cardiovascular risk reduction. Many sessions use a case-based approach to emphasize clinical relevance.

ASN designates this live activity for a maximum of 16.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Nurses: This activity is awarded up to 16.0 ANCC contact hours.

This program includes an electronic syllabus (not a printed syllabus).

Course Objective(s)

Upon completion of the program, the participant will be able to: 1) describe the rationale and clinical role of recent advances in the management of pre-dialysis stage 5 CKD, peritoneal dialysis, and in-center and home hemodialysis; 2) apply recent evidence to improve management of vascular access; 3) discuss the impact and management of common complications of ESRD; 4) describe the current evidence to attenuate cardiovascular risk for patients undergoing maintenance dialysis; and 5) discuss home hemodialysis methods and programs.
