2023 ANNA CE Symposium- Newer Therapies to Optimize Outcomes in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

By: PRLog

This CE Symposium takes place during the 2023 American Nephrology Nurses Association #ANNAnurses on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 from 6:30 AM - 8:30 PM PT at the Palm Springs Convention Center, Palm Springs, California.

HAZLET, N.J. - April 6, 2023 - PRLog -- In this CE Symposium, during the 2023 American Nephrology Nurses Association #ANNAnurses, expert faculty will discuss the clinical evidence that newer potassium binders and sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors can have a dramatic impact on outcomes of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Potassium binders can not only effectively treat hyperkalemia, which can potentially be life-threatening, but very importantly enable CKD patients to continue taking life-saving renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASi) therapy. Furthermore, potassium binders can prevent the need for urgent rescue therapy to reduce serum potassium in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing adequate dialysis. SGLT2 inhibitors have demonstrated significant reductions in the progression of CKD as well as in cardiovascular riskā€”in individuals with and without type 2 diabetes. It is therefore essential for nephrology nurses to not only be aware of the robust clinical data with these therapies but also play a critical role in the effective implementation of therapy, patient education, and adherence. Therefore, in this symposium, experts will interpret clinical evidence with these agents, and panel discussions will address prudent patient behaviors and fundamental knowledge for outcomes to be optimized.
