STATEMENT OF NEED :
Chronic kidney disease affects 30-40 million Americans, of whom several thousand require renal replacement therapy. These selected lectures are chosen by the HDCN editor and ASN Postgraduate Medical Director to reflect those areas of practice of greatest interest to the clinician, and areas where recent progress has occurred. The web extension of these ASN/ISN lectures will allow nephrologists and other physicians who were unable to attend the live sessions to gain similar benefit from these presentations. Similarly, those talks chosen for Nursing CEUs will allow nephrology nurses, pharmacists, and technicians to also get the educational benefit of this material.
