This activity will provide a general review and update of topics pertinent to clinical practices in nephrology. Every year emerging scientific data alter the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management strategies for patients with kidney disease, creating gaps in practitioners’ knowledge, competencies, and performance, resulting in less than optimal patient outcomes. Nephrology Update features experts who provide a review of the most up-to-date data and analyze it for implications in clinical practice.
