Onco-Nephrology: Cancer, Chemotherapy, and the Kidneys

Course Description

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death and is rapidly becoming a global pandemic. Patients with cancer and kidney diseases have a worse prognosis with higher rates of mortality and morbidity. Onco-nephrology represents a field dedicated to understanding and treating the complex renal problems that arise in patients with cancer. This program discusses the various aspects of kidney diseases associated with cancer. Its lectures and case-based discussions enable participants to refine their knowledge of novel cancer agents and their nephrotoxicities and learn about monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance. The program covers several topics, such as AKI and CKD in patients with cancer, and present an update on post-renal transplant cancers.

ASN designates this live activity for a maximum of 8.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Pharmacists: This live educational offering has been approved for 8.25 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) identify the clinical and laboratory features of renal toxicities across a spectrum of cancer chemotherapies and monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance; 2) manage specific categories of patients with AKI or CKD, including bone marrow transplant patients and renal transplant patients diagnosed with cancer; 3) evaluate and manage patients with a renal mass; and 4) describe the fluid and electrolyte disorders associated with cancer.
