Due to the popularity of this education session in 2021, the Western NSW PHN is pleased to partner with Kidney Health Australia to once again present this interactive case-study based webinar which has been updated to better suit the target audience.

CKD is more common in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population and often goes undiagnosed. This virtual education session will explore the role of the Aboriginal / Torres Strait Islander Health Worker in the detection and management of CKD; highlighting detection of CKD and best practice management in primary care along with explaining the various
decisions that are made with the patient for ongoing management. After completing this education, Health Workers should be able to include CKD screening and its management as part of all chronic disease management.

Learning outcomes:

  • State the high prevalence and poor outcomes of CKD in Australian Indigenous peoples
  • State why a Kidney Health Check is important for people with risk factors of CKD
  • Identify your role in the detection and management of CKD and explain the decisions required to help CKD
  • Learn some language (jargon) of CKD and develop confidence to discuss CKD testing and management as part of chronic disease management
