Complete the Medscape Education module, ‘Expert approaches: how to improve CKD–MBD management in daily practice’

The module is intended for an international audience of non-US physicians, specifically, nephrologists in Europe. You will not earn any continuing professional development (CPD) credits upon completing it, because it has expired. However, you should find great value in the wealth of practical advice provided by the experts who created it.

What will you learn?

Authored by Dr Smeeta Sinha,* Professor Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh and Professor Mario Cozzolino, this CPD module is designed to:

  • Improve your understanding of how chronic kidney disease–mineral and bone disorder (CKD–MBD) impacts patients when it is uncontrolled
  • Enhance your competence in selecting the most appropriate regimens for treating hyperphosphataemia and secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in CKD patients

The module consists of an engaging and informative presentation, led by Dr Sinha. The presentation begins with a detailed patient case and is followed by practical clinical assessments by professors Kalantar-Zadeh and Cozzolino. All of the slides used in the presentation are available for download.

Released on 26 October 2020, the module is available until 26 October 2021.
