Course summary

In clinical practice, both in primary and secondary care, kidney disease are 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.

Assessment

The renal medicine course puts assessment at the heart of learning by using clinical scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment, embedding assessment within the learning process.

Each of the six modules has the same assessment format:

  • Academic Forum - 40%
  • Reflective Journal - 10%
  • Module activity - 20%
  • Case based examination - 30%
