    Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS): best practices and effective management

    Activity Description / Statement of Need:

    Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a disease in which the complement system is activated in an uncontrolled manner outside the presence of coexisting disease, resulting in platelet activation, damage to endothelial cells, and a range of clinical sequelae, including kidney failure, systemic thrombotic microangiopathy, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. The disease may arise from any of a number of genetic mutations of the complement system or the presence of anti-complement factor H. While it is estimated to occur at an equally commonly between males and females, the disease is rare, with an incidence of about 2 to 9 people per million and a prevalence of about 5 per million.

    This educational activity identifies the critical components of the management process and offer solutions to close gaps in diagnosis and care, with the ultimate goals being the improvement of aHUS management, treatment adherence, and health and cost outcomes. 

    Target Audience:

    Hematologists and primary care physicians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in hematology and transplant medicine; and any other HCPs with an interest in or who may clinically encounter patients with aHUS.

    The recognition and diagnosis and management of anemia & hyperphosphatemia in CKD: Filtering it down to what the clinician needs to know

    Activity Description / Statement of Need:

    In this online, self-learning activity:

     Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects about 15% of the general population in the United States and is the tenth-leading cause of death, accounting for 52,260 deaths in 2020. Along with the risk for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD), CKD has also been associated with a number of complications, including anemia and hyperphosphatemia. Anemia occurs in about 15% of patients with CKD and arises from decreased erythropoiesis and abnormal iron metabolism. Hyperphosphatemia occurs in the later stages of CKD because the kidney is the primary method by which the body maintains phosphate. This retention of phosphate leads to the development of CKD-mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD), with the literature suggesting that hyperphosphatemia occurs in a large portion of patients on dialysis based on phosphate binder (PB) usage.

    This learning activity has been designed to bring HCPs’ knowledge of the treatment and screening of anemia and hyperphosphatemia in patients with CKD up to date and to improve their competence and performance in treating it. It will walk participants through treatment pathways and review of the evidence behind therapies to treat CKD’s complications.

    Target Audience:

    The following HCPs: nephrologists and primary care physicians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists who practice in nephrology; and any other HCPs with an interest in or who clinically encounter patients with CKD.
