This professional educational activity will address the common medical problem of CKD-MBD and the implications for cardiac outcomes. Content will review new data related to CKD-MBD published since the 2009 KDIGO guideline on CKD-MBD. Strategies to improve patient adherence and the implications of calcium levels in CKD will also be presented. Finally, the relationship between CKD-MBD and CVD and the opportunity to improve treatment and develop strategies to improve patient management and outcomes will be explored. A case study approach will facilitate application of learning to clinical practice.
