Course Description

ADPKD is the most common inherited cause of kidney disease and the third most common cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Even though it is thought to be primarily a kidney disease, it is truly a systemic disease with significant extra-renal involvement, especially in the liver and intracranial blood vessels. Being an autosomal dominant genetic disease, it impacts families and tends to have significant impact on morbidity, mortality and financial burden that does not only affect the family, but society as well. Because it is a multi-faceted disease, it takes an interdisciplinary team approach to provide the best comprehensive care to the patient and his/her family members. There have been significant advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of ADPKD and its management. This highly interactive, participatory conference provides clinicians and health care providers with a better understanding and update of the disease state and equips them with the best evidence-based clinical practices. The emphasis will be on practical application of evidence-based medicine and physiological principles to every day clinical care.

Target Audience

Nephrologists, geneticists, pediatricians, hepatologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, transplant specialists, dialysis specialists, obstetricians, pain management providers, surgeons, interventional radiologists, internists, primary care providers, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, trainees, researchers, and other healthcare affiliates involved with ADPKD.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
