Renal: Next steps in learning...

Last updated: Monday, April 18, 2022

Your education as a professional never stops, but here are some suggestions to take you beyond what's on this site.

If you have an interest in caring for patients with renal disease, then consider joining the UK Renal Pharmacy Group. It’s an opportunity to make contact with colleagues with similar interests, share expert resources, receive training, and keep up-to-date. Most of the RPG website is only accessible to members, but the site provides free beginners lectures on  guide to chronic kidney disease, acute kidney injury and pharmacokinetics and drug dosing in renal impairment. It also has as some brief leaflets on these topics as well as one on caring for a patient with a kidney transplant and one on haemodialysis.

CPPE has links to useful resources via its renal gateway page including an introduction to renal therapeutics, hospital and community case stuides and a quiz.

The Kidn-e Project is a collaboration between the Renal Association, the Royal College of Physicians, and e-LfH. Interactive case-based modules cover the causes, assessment, diagnosis and management of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The Kidn-e programme is available to NHS staff in England via the Electronic Staff Record. Your tutor or education & training lead can show you how to access this.
