last update on: 02/23/2022
Explore the benefits that plant-based diets have for patients with kidney disease.
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 1 hour.
This activity is approved for continuing education for physicians, nurses, dietitians and health and wellness coaches.
The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
1. The participant will be able to describe the observational evidence linking a reduction in the incidence and progression of kidney disease.
2. The participant will be able to identify how plant-based diets can be used to treat complications of kidney disease, like metabolic acidosis, hypertension, and hyperphosphatemia.
3. Finally, the participant will be able to navigate potential issues related to plant-based diets, like hyperkalemia and protein deficiency.
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.
