This programme is aimed at all registered nurses and focuses on developing competency in the assessment and management of patients presenting with impaired renal function. The course will assist nurses in implementing evidence-based practice while caring for this cohort of patients in clinical practice. Common causes of acute kidney injury and chronic renal failure are sepsis, diabetes and hypertension, all of which are extremely prevalent in the acute, older person and community patient populations. It is envisaged that this programme will both inform and equip nurses to more comprehensively assess and care for patients with renal dysfunction.nction.
