This presentation describes evidenced-based practices for slowing the progression of kidney disease and dietary recommendations for both chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients.

The Learning Process:

Participants are expected to watch the video, reflect on its content, and complete the CME self-assessment and CME evaluation. Only upon completing this process will a participant's continuing education certificate be generated. The estimated time a learner will need to complete this self-study activity is 30 minutes.

This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, and dietitians. 

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.


  • Identify risk factors for kidney disease progression
  • Describe current literature on evidence-based practices for slowing down kidney disease progression
  • List optimal dietary recommendations for chronic kidney disease and dialysis patients.

Requirements for successful completion: Participants will be awarded contact hours commensurate with participation after completion of the post-test with a score of 70% or higher.

Recorded live at the 2019 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine.
