Live Medical Crossfire®: Are You Focusing on Chronic Kidney Disease? Evolving Treatment Strategies in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes


Tuesday, October 13, 2020

Live, Interactive Webcast

Scientific Session: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM CDT

Overview

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects approximately 15% of individuals in the U.S., and is primarily caused by diabetes and hypertension. CKD is a silent killer, with symptoms that do not manifest until greater than 90% of renal function is lost. Almost half of individuals with CKD also have cardiovascular disease, and the annual mortality exceeds breast or prostate cancers. Unfortunately, early interventions are impeded by alarmingly low screening rates, underdiagnosis, and minimal patient awareness.

During this Medical Crossfire®, a multidisciplinary panel will discuss the impact of CKD in patients with diabetes, from risk factors to guideline-based screening recommendations, followed by renoprotective strategies with new and emerging agents. A series of patient cases with increasing severity of kidney disease will exemplify best approaches and treatments to improve patient outcomes.

Benefits of Attending

  • Enhance your understanding of the complex interplay between metabolic abnormalities and kidney disease
  • Employ the latest guidelines for screening and diagnosis of CKD
  • Learn how to optimize renoprotective treatments through case presentations
  • Increase awareness of treatments that have the potential to impact patient outcomes

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward attendees of the 2020 Family Medicine Experience who treat patients with diabetes. Nephrologists and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of CKD in patients with diabetes are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe recommended screening and diagnostic practices for CKD in patients with T2DM
  • Identify CKD as a unique disease with high risk of cardiovascular and renal comorbidities
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety of nonsteroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists and other therapies under investigation for the treatment of CKD
  • Recognize the complex pathophysiology of CKD and emerging approaches to intervene in disease progression
