Course content

In clinical practice, both in primary and secondary care, kidney disease is encountered frequently by the non-kidney specialist, especially as it is as a complication of common conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Healthcare professionals on the front line need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with potential nephrology patients confidently and effectively.

Delivered online with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, this renal medicine course will enable you to diagnose and treat patients with symptoms of kidney disease with confidence, without being a kidney specialist.

It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to prevent or reduce the progression of CKD and ensure timely referral to secondary care, help you to treat dialysis and transplant patients from a primary care perspective and consolidate your knowledge to ensure best patient care and service outcomes.
