Program Overview

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has an estimated global prevalence of between 11 to 13%. Over 2 million people worldwide suffer from end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring dialysis or kidney transplantation, and is associated with a significant medical and economic burden. Genetic kidney disease affects nearly 10% of adults with CKD, and up to 70% of children with early-onset kidney disease. In the recent years, the diagnosis and management of patients affected by genetic kidney disease has rapidly evolved. Genomics has allowed better understanding of disease pathogenesis, providing prognostic information and facilitating development of targeted treatments for patients with genetic kidney disorders. However, the dissemination of this critical knowledge is not widespread. There is a real need to educate providers in the use of genetic testing in routine clinical practice.

Learning Objectives
Discuss advances in the diagnosis of genetic disorders in the kidney clinic.
Explore case-based examples of how a genetic diagnosis can help management of kidney patients.

Target Audience
Health Care Providers including: Adult specialty practitioners, pediatricians, primary care physicians; geneticists; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists; and any other HCPs with an interest in or who may clinically encounter patients.
