Event Overview
Welcome message:

Kidney disease is common in patients with cancer. As cancer treatments advance in efficacy and scope, their effects on the kidney and bodily homeostasis become increasingly  complex to diagnose and manage. There exists a very real need for nephrologists and trainees to develop proficiency in the recognition and therapy of the unique renal syndromes that arise in the setting of cancer.


The goal of this symposium is to inform physicians and advanced practice providers about the current best practices, in the hopes of improving their approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer-associated kidney disorders. 


By presenting a spectrum of evidence-based recommendations, we endeavor to effect a positive change. We anticipate that participants will be able to apply these lessons to refine their practices and, hopefully, improve patient outcomes. 


Educational Objectives


After attending the symposium, participants should be able to:


Diagnose the common renal complications arising from cancer and its treatments (Knowledge, Competence);

Prevent or treat nephrotoxicity associated with cancer (Knowledge, Competence, Performance); 

Recognize and treat electrolyte disorders in patients with cancer (Knowledge, Competence, Performance);

Learn about the role of a nephrologist in kidney cancer (Knowledge);
