New Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinical Pathway podcast

June 2, 2015

In November last year, ACP informed you about a new online Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinical Pathway to aid in the identification, management, and referral of adults with CKD. The pathway provides information and recommendations that assist in the screening, diagnosis, management and referral of adults with CKD.

Recently, CKD Pathway developed a short (less than 10 minutes) podcast around a family physician’s perspective in using the CKD pathway in clinical practice.

After hearing the podcast, listeners will be able to:          

  1. Recognize the criteria for CKD targeted testing;
  2. Identify what tests that should be ordered (and how often); and
  3. Know how to diagnose, manage and refer patients with kidney disease using the Online CKD Clinical Pathway.

You can get the podcast from the W21C Patient Safety Podcast (Episode 40) on iTunes or can download it from the W21C website - http://www.patientsafetypodcast.com/home/episode-guide/epi-40_  

Please visit the CKD Clinical Pathway for more information about how they can support you in treating patients with kidney disease.
