"Educating clients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) about maintaining good health care practices is essential. This workshop focuses on health promotion and primary care needs. Developing plans for implementing health promotion strategies into the plan of care for CKD patients is a major goal. A discussion of the immunizations essential for adults and particularly for patients with CKD will provide valuable information for those planning the education. Finally, health issues encountered by men and women withCKD that could have an impact on their overall plan of care is addressed."
