Renal Updates

Renal Updates



Presented by: Professor Johan Rosman (Nephrologist, Professor of Medicine Curtin School of Medicine)


Often perceived as complex and highly physiological, renal medicine is ultimately easily explained if we try to stay away from the tongue-breaking disease names used in this specialty. The aim of this symposium is to refresh renal knowledge in a non- conventional way and to explain the background of, in particular, progression of chronic kidney disease. The concepts of delaying progression will be explored.
As renal disease can only be efficiently treated if GP and nephrologist keep an open relationship with each other, with easy access to exchange ideas, the partnership that primary care and secondary care have in Australia will be critically reviewed.
The aim is to take from this symposium an update of where renal medicine is at in 2017 and hopefully forge the so necessary relationships between those working in primary care and the nephrologists.


• Participants will understand the background of the reasons for progression of renal disease and the latest insights in how to prevent this where possible.
• Participants will gain knowledge in new therapeutic options that have opened the last few years in the domain of common kidney disease.
• Participants will feel comfortable about the decision when to refer a patient to a nephrologist, and how to participate in the triangle of integrated care Patient-GP-Nephrologist.

Several years ago, the Department of Health adapted a motto that included “Healthy Hospitals, Healthy Staff”.   A few reconfigurations later, and some say they have never seen our hospitals or staff, looking sicker. So, what are the main factors …
