6.0 CH, 3.0 Rx

Rasheed Balogun, MD, FACP, FASN, HP (ASCP)
Mitchell Rosner, MD, MACP
Nadeen Khoury, MD

This workshop will focus on various complications experienced by patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the assessments, planning, and interventions for which all nephrology nurses are responsible. In addition to the more common complications associated with CKD (anemia, heart disease, gout, and diabetes), complications related to treatment modalities (disequilibrium syndrome, water treatment issues, vascular access problems) also will be discussed. Issues that may arise in home dialysis (such as peritonitis) as well as complications related to organ transplantation also will be addressed.

Impact of Race and Ethnicity on Risk of Acute Kidney Injury and End-Stage Kidney Disease Hospital Readmissions

6.0 CH, 1.5 Rx

Naveed Masani, MD, FACP, FASN
Tracy Anderson-Haag, PharmD, BCPS
Felicia Speed, LMSW
Mignon Early, MSN, BSN, RN

While information is available on social determinants of health and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in health care, nephrology nurses working in acute dialysis settings need to know how these issues impact their unique patient population. This workshop will focus on how DEI issues may impact the risk, recurrence, morbidity, and mortality of acute kidney injury and end-stage kidney disease readmissions. Sessions will focus on improving cultural awareness and sensitivity and will assist acute dialysis nurses in planning effective and meaningful communications and discharge planning.
