If you are newer to nephrology nursing – or just think you need a little more in-depth background – this workshop will meet your needs. This course includes an in-depth analysis of the pathophysiology involved in glomerular vs. tubular disease processes, reviews common medications used in the treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD), provides an analysis of how to teach patients about the spectrum of available modality options, and shares methods to provide clear and effective patient education. This program provides the “why” that many nephrology nurses feel that they are missing. Contact hours available until 9/27/2014.
Requirements for Successful Completion: Complete the learning activity in its entirety and complete the online CNE evaluation.
Faculty, Planners and Authors Conflict of Interest Disclosure: Presenters have no disclosures to declare.
Resolution of Conflict of Interest: The resolutions of conflicts of interest are completed during the planning process. It is the responsibility of the nurse planner to identify and resolve any conflicts prior to implementation of the learning activity.
When a conflict of interest is noted during the planning process, the nurse planner will actively involve the speaker, presenter or author in the resolution of the identified conflict of interest.
The resolution process for a conflict of interest will be documented in the activity file. The potential conflict of interest will be outlined to the planner/presenter/author on the Disclosure Form. The purpose of the disclosure is not to prevent a presenter/ content expert from presenting, but rather to provide the learners with information from which they may make their own decisions. Relevant relationships or potential COI will be identified to learners through a disclosure process.
