Active learning modules

Detection and management cases of chronic kidney disease


The management of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD),  helps to prolong the decline of kidney function and reduce complications associated with end stage kidney disease. CKD management also works well with the management of comorbidities, such as hypertension and diabetes. This active learning module uses pre-reading, a didactic presentation and interactive case studies to highlight the issues associated with management of people with CKD and comorbidities followed by a reinforcing activity.


Learning Outcomes:

  • Define the use and limitations of eGFR in staging Chronic Kidney Disease.
  • Define the role of the GP in detecting and managing Chronic Kidney Disease in the primary care setting.
  • Outline the goals for best practice management of Chronic Kidney Disease, with regard to comorbidities, acute kidney presentations, nephrotic syndrome and hypertension.
  • Determine when to refer patients with Chronic Kidney Disease to a Nephrologist according to the recommended clinical indicators.
  • Implement a practice-based system, for patient safety, to identify patients at higher risk of Chronic Kidney Disease for a kidney health check.
