SHPT training 1/3: improve your SHPT treatment skills & earn CPD credits

4 September 2019

Module 1 of 3 from Prof. SM Sprague will give you a deeper understanding of SHPT and its management

Released in June 2019 and intended for non-US nephrologists and primary care physicians, the goal of this continuing professional development (CPD) module is to raise awareness and understanding of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) and its treatment. The module covers the latest clinical data and emerging treatments for SHPT in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease (ND-CKD) patients, with emphasis on the importance of early diagnosis for improved outcomes.

If you complete this module, you will:

  • Have a better understanding of SHPT
  • Be better equipped to interpret the CKD–MBD-related guidelines set out by Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO)
  • Be updated on the latest clinical data and emerging SHPT treatment options
  • Improve your ability to evaluate the viability of different treatment options for patients with differing levels of SHPT severity
  • Gain a maximum of 0.50 CPD credits

The module was authored by Stuart M Sprague, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Pritzker School of Medicine, University of Chicago. Note that you can download the accompanying slides.

Available at Medscape Education, the module is entitled ‘Improving Management of Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in Non-Dialysis Patients’.
