Apr 29, 2012 9:45am ‐ Apr 29, 2012 11:00am


Description

TMusculoskeletal diseases and dysfunctions are commonly seen in patients with CKD, but the presentation can be confusing. This workshop will address these issues and provide the needed tools for working with these patients more efficiently. The session will provide an overview of the musculoskeletal system and assessment tools and will specifically address two disorders: gout and mineral and bone disease (including fractures and calciphylaxis). The pathophysiology, manifestations, and necessary medical and nursing interventions for these disorders will be discussed.
