Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are serious chronic illnesses, and each have a substantial burden on public health. In most cases, these chronic illnesses do not occur in isolation, and the impact on patient morbidity and mortality is more profound when multiple diseases are present. CVD mortality is a more likely outcome than kidney failure in patients with CKD. This activity will address the association between CKD and CVD. Evaluation and monitoring will also be addressed. Evidence-based management strategies that utilize a multifactorial approach to reducing CVD risk in patients with CKD will also be included.
