This web-based interactive virtual patient activity focuses on the issue of growth failure as a result of growth hormone dysfunction in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Participants have the opportunity to review an expert discussion on the treatment of growth failure in CKD, with an emphasis on the role of growth hormone therapy in improving outcomes. Recommendations for appropriate use of growth hormone therapy are presented, along with two virtual patient case studies through which participants learn how to assess, monitor, and treat patients with growth failure in CKD.
