Evaluation of Kidney Function – Part 2: Application of eGFR Assessment Equations
This is an important topic for pharmacists and health care providers who see people with kidney disease. This module will cover the evaluation of kidney function part 2, focusing on the application of the race-less eGFR equation to stage Chronic Kidney Disease, evaluate when evidence-based medication therapy is warranted and determine a drug dosing regimen. It is recommended to review Evaluation of Kidney Function – Part 1: Use of Race-Less eGFR before taking this module.
By the end of this module, learners will be able to:
- Review the recommended race-less eGFR equations covered in Part 1 and their clinical application
- Determine when kidney function is stable and the race-less eGFR equations are appropriate for CKD staging
- Use information from eGFR assessment to determine necessary evidence-based therapies to address kidney and cardiometabolic outcomes
