Chronic Kidney Disease: Impact of Next Generation Therapeutics

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company. 

Course Description:

Advancements in treating chronic kidney disease (CKD) are being driven by an increased understanding of disease mechanisms and the use of precision medicine approaches to target the underlying causes. It is anticipated that several new treatment options will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the next five years. While the new agents may represent scientific advancements, the cost of these treatments will also require assessment of budget impact and appropriate managed care strategies to ensure safe and appropriate use in patients.  

Faculty will provide an overview of current CKD management and a summary of treatment advances likely to be available in the near future. This session will also demonstrate the importance of addressing health disparities in CKD, addressing patient quality of life, and understanding the financial impact of novel therapies.  

Learning Objectives 

At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to: 

  • Discuss the recent treatment and emerging pipeline advancements targeting the underlying causes of chronic kidney disease. 
  • Describe key health disparities that can impact access to chronic kidney disease care. 
  • Discuss the burden of chronic kidney disease on patients and the impact on quality of life. 
  • Describe the financial impact of treating chronic kidney disease in the US.
