The Foundation Seminar in Kidney Disease and Transplantation will be delivered by combination of a self-paced learning package covering key nephrology topics followed by a one day live virtual seminar.  

Both the self-paced package and live virtual seminar aim to improve pharmacists' knowledge and skills in providing care for patients with kidney disease. The seminar will provide opportunities to learn about pharmacy practice at a foundation level, covering topics including, Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), the management of complications of CKD, drug dosing in kidney impairment and renal replacement therapies.  

Knowledge-check questions will be utilised in the self-paced learning package to assist in cementing attendees learning ahead of the live seminar day.  Attendees will explore key concepts in greater detail in live case study sessions during the live virtual seminar. There will be opportunity for attendees to engage in Q&A with expert presenters during the live seminar day.  

This seminar is targeted at pharmacists with either less than 5 years clinical experience, general medical experience who would like more exposure to foundational components of nephrology or those who may be transitioning into a specialist nephrology rotation. 

The self-paced learning package comprises approximately 8 hours of learning materials. The live virtual component of this seminar will take place on 20 April 2024. 

Please note: all attendees will have 18 weeks of access to the seminar self-paced learning package and resources from your date of enrolment into this page.
