The Nephrology team returns to bring the topics you requested! This half-day morning program will upskill you on signs, symptoms and severities of kidney diseases such as Glomerulonephritis/Nephritis and when patients with these conditions should be referred. In addition, you will examine different approaches to the management of patients with nephrological disorders, including how to support them when they request home dialysis and even palliative care. You will also contemplate the expectations of care from the perspective of a patient and will be able to list examples of how to improve care for patients with kidney disease.

Credits
This Group Learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by Queen's University for up to 2.5 Mainpro+ credits.  This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and is approved by the Office of Continuing Professional Development, Queen's University.  You may claim a maximum of 2.5 hours.

In an effort to switch to a “less paper” program, the presentations will be available online under the program in your Program Centre account rather than being printed.
