Passport sponsors educational symposium for medical professionals to learn more about chronic kidney disease

Passport is sponsoring a live professional education symposium called, “CKDinform: Early Detection and Prevention” for primary care practitioners (PCPs) to learn more about chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) event takes place on Saturday, November 11, at the Marriott Louisville East, 1903 Embassy Square Blvd., in Louisville.

The 3-hour symposium focuses on the unique role that PCPs play in managing CKD patients. Topics will include the burden of CKD to the population, modifiable CKD risk factors, screening methods, and interpretation of test results. Evidence-based treatment recommendations and management plans for CKD will be presented, and the program will also address the need for timely referral to nephrologists, in addition to the importance of patient education and counseling.

It  is designed for physicians (primary care, cardiologists, endocrinologists), nurses, advanced practitioners, and other clinicians who care for people with CKD.

Attendees at the event will earn up to 3.0 continuing medical education/continuing education (CME/CE) credits/contact hours. Registration in advance is $25; registration at the door will be $30.
