Kidney Supportive Care and Conservative Kidney Management Curriculum

The Conservative Kidney Management (CKM) curriculum aims to build global capacity for the skills and knowledge needed to implement sustainable CKM programs. Given that kidney supportive care (KSC) is the focus of care in CKM, this curriculum will hopefully also promote the delivery of KSC for all those with advanced kidney disease based on an individual’s need. 

Specifically, the objectives of the curriculum are to: 

 1.     Educate participants in the fundamentals of CKM and KSC. 

2.     Expand their perspectives about CKM and KSC as core components of integrated kidney care.  

3.     Stimulate further enquiry into CKM and KSC.   

The course will systematically lead participants through the main elements of CKM and KSC. Throughout, the practical aspects of care and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach shall be highlighted. The course will examine the challenges to CKM and KSC service provision globally, including issues of resources, capacity building, and advocacy in low- and middle-income countries. 

The curriculum will be module based and will combine i) didactic material that synthesizes the best evidence; ii) clinical scenarios to assist participants in consolidating their understanding of the material; iii) multiple choice questions based on the didactic material; and iv) a recommended reading list to encourage participants to pursue deeper study.
