Basic/Clinical Science Session

Advances in Evidence-Based Care for Pediatric Renal Disease

November 08, 2019 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: 152, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

This session is a prioritized summary of recent advances from peer-reviewed knowledge in the causes, diagnoses, treatments, and outcomes related to kidney diseases that could or should drive evidence-based changes in care for children with renal diseases. Experts provide a summary of recent publications in each clinical area, summarize the recent advances in their field (prioritizing pediatric evidence over adult where available), interpret them in the context of current approaches to clinical care, and end with a summary of suggested evidence-based improvements for clinical care.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Define the most recent evidence in the care of children with PKD
  • Describe a pragmatic approach based on evidence in the treatment of children with steroid-dependent or -resistant nephrotic syndrome
  • Summarize the most recent evidence in the nephrologist’s role in the care of children with metabolic syndrome
  • Summarize the most recent evidence and guidelines about IV fluid administration in children
