Release Date: March 07, 2017
Expiration Date: March 06, 2018

Description:

Hypertension is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is often a comorbid condition with increasing prevalence in the United States. These two conditions are very closely linked. Inadequately managed blood pressure is a major risk factor for progression of CKD to end stage renal disease, often requiring renal transplantation. Dr. Keith C. Norris presents a case-based approach to applying the often conflicting guidelines regarding blood pressure management in patients with CKD.

Speaker:

Keith C. Norris, MD, PhD, FASN

Professor of Medicine

UCLA Division of General Internal Medicine and Health Services Research

Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the best evidence for targeted blood pressure management in patients with CKD.
  2. Identify the key outcomes of randomized controlled trials including the SPRINT trial.
  3. Apply major clinical guidelines regarding blood pressure targets in patients with chronic kidney disease.

Maintenance of Certification (MOC) for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM):

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1 MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

The UCLA Office of Continuing Medical Education will report your MOC Points to the American Board of Internal Medicine at the end of this calendar month. The ABIM will update your account once your points are processed.

Accreditation:

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosure Statement:

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest from the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, policy of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.

Dr. Norris has indicated that he does not have an affiliation with organizations which may have interests related to the content of this program.
