Description

Exercise programs for CKD patients are rare, and implementation requires specific expertise that is not normally provided by exercise certifications or training programs. The purpose of this project is to develop a program to train students, health care professionals, and researchers to create/implement exercise programs across the spectrum of CKD. In the course's initial version, the goal is to create a curriculum with content for individuals with diverse educational backgrounds and training, while future iterations of the course will be tailored for specific audiences (exercise specialists, nurses, technicians, nephrology fellows, etc.). The course could also be adapted for an undergraduate or master level exercise science course that could be offered as part of the curriculum at universities globaly.
The initial course will include a series of online modules including: 1)PowerPoint presentation related to each module; 2)a video recording of the lecture presentation from the module developers; 3)a reading list; and 4)assessment tools that can be used for evaluation/comprehension. Proposed modules are as follows: 1)CKD pathophysiology and treatment; 2)Understanding CKD from the Patient Perspective; 3)Overview of Exercise in CKD/ESKD; 4)Screening, Needs Assessment, and Outcome Testing; 5)Strategies for Exercise Prescription in CKD; 6)Behaviour Change Principles/Strategies; 7)Individual and Class Management Techniques; and 8)Implementation Strategies.
The course is being designed by the Global Renal Exercise (GREX) network, an international group of researchers, clinicians, industry leaders and others whose primary aim is to improve the research base and implementation of exercise interventions in CKD. Feedback will be solicited from context experts developing the modules, and during an in-person meeting in Chicago, IL. This meeting will occur in Fall 2022 to evaluate module content, provide hands-on training to reinforce specific skills discussed in the modules, and discuss potential issues related to implementation/dissemination of the course. The in-person training will include potential users and those who have an interest in taking the course for educational purposes. Feedback will be used for future course considerations, iterations for specific audiences, and strategies for disseminating the course globally.
