Managing the nutritional needs of the renal diabetic patient is complex. Acute illness can further compound this situation. Upon completion of this webinar, individuals will be able to identify the challenges that diabetic patients on varying renal replacement therapies face during times of acute illness.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
Identify complications associated with acute illness.
Identify target goals for glycemic control in patients.
Identify the fluid restrictions associated with hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and home hemodialysis patients.
Plan/prepare nutrition treatment goals for acutely ill patients.
Determine fluid replacement required for each modality in diabetic patients in acute illness.
FOR CDEs: This Course Qualifies for CE Credit!
To satisfy the requirement for renewal of certification according to the National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators (NCBDE, www.ncbde.org), courses must relate to diabetes and be part of the list of recognized providers of the NCBDE. The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) is listed as an NCBDE recognized provider. Because Dietitian Central has been granted accreditation by the CDR, it therefore meets the criteria as an approved provider of CEs for CDEs by the NCBDE. The NCBDE does not directly approve continuing education for any specific webinar or self study course.
