Welcome to the Nursing Times Learning online training course on managing anaemia in chronic kidney disease.
Anaemia is associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and data from different sources suggest that there are around 100,000 people in the UK with the combination of CKD and a low haemoglobin (Hb) level.
This unit explains the pathophysiology of anaemia in CKD and the factors that contribute to it. It covers in detail the investigations patients should receive to identify the cause of their anaemia and how to interpret results.
It is one of many online courses for nurses available from Nursing Times, the UK's leading independent, peer-reviewed journal for nurses. It will teach you:
- The pathophysiology of anaemia in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the factors that contribute to renal anaemia
- How to identify and interpret appropriate clinical investigations
- How to plan and manage the treatment of anaemia in line with NICE guidance (2006) for anaemia in CKD
- The role and appropriateness of the various forms of iron therapy in anaemia management
