Common dilemmas for GPs in identifying, monitoring and managing individual patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are addressed in a new e-learning course launched this month. Kidney Health in General Practice has been produced by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) in partnership with NHS Kidney Care. The course is free, subject to registration on the RCGP e-learning website. It aims to improve the detection and management of chronic kidney disease. Over 1.8m people in England are diagnosed with CKD stages 3-5 with estimates suggesting a further 700,000 remain undiagnosed. Early detection and management can reduce mortality and delay the need for renal replacement therapy and associated lifestyle constraints and costs. The course takes around three hours to complete, which can be broken up in 20 minute sections and is freely available on the RCGP Online Learning Environment.
