Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major health concern with a growing disease burden and inequalities in access to treatments. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is accepted as the best overall measure of kidney function and is considered the most important measure for medications cleared by the kidneys. In clinical practice, equations that estimate GFR using validated prediction equations are routinely used. This practice update was developed by a Working Group comprising clinical pharmacists representing the Society of Hospital Pharmacists of Australia (SHPA) Specialty Practice streams of Nephrology, Oncology and haematology, Critical care and Infectious diseases. It is intended to provide practical recommendations for clinical pharmacists who use equations to estimate GFR for medication dosing decisions.
This webinar will overview the medication, disease and patient related considerations in this practice update.
