COVID-19 has led to an increase in patients developing acute kidney injury requiring renal replacement therapies. ANNA has created the following free education bundles to meet the learning needs of nurses from nephrology and non-nephrology specialties as they manage the care surrounding this influx of patients and therapies.

As you care for patients who are ill, perhaps even profoundly ill, the incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) increases. These sessions focus on the pathophysiology, symptoms, and nursing interventions related to AKI. One session details the unique considerations of the older adult experiencing AKI: a population particularly at risk for COVID-19.
Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is delivered to hemodynamically unstable in the critical care setting experiencing kidney failure. CRRT is increasingly being used to manage the patient diagnosed with COVID-19. Sessions describe the use of CRRT, patient assessment, and nursing interventions required for the care of this population.
These sessions have been assembled for nurses caring for patients receiving hemodialysis. Highlights include complication recognition, infection prevention, and assessment information for a patient with end-stage renal disease receiving hemodialysis. The content in this package does not focus on the procedure of delivering a dialysis treatment.
These sessions provide a preview of important information needed to safely deliver peritoneal dialysis (PD). This content is broad in scope, covering both patients receiving PD as a maintenance therapy and patients started on the therapy to manage acute kidney injury. Patient assessment, nursing interventions, and peritonitis prevention are highlights of this package.
