Kidney Health Australia's Primary Care Education Program, in partnership with Far West Local Health District and Western NSW Primary Health Network, is please to present an interactive case study-based workshop:
"Detecting and Managing Chronic Kidney Disease".
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) presents a significant health problem in Australia.  One in three Australian adults is at increased risk of developing CKD due to identified risk factors including age, high blood pressure and diabetes.  A person can lose up to 90% of their kidney function before experiencing any symptoms.  The usual setting for initial assessment and diagnosis of CKD is in general practice.  Providing education on detection and management of CKD to Primary Health Care professionals will improve outcomes for individuals living with CKD and reduce the burden of CKD in the community.
Dr Samantha Bateman is a Nephrologist and General Physician with the Central and Northern Area Renal and Transplant Service at The Royal Adelaide Hospital, she has a special interest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, and in achieving best outcomes for all people, particularly those living in rural and remote communities.
