The online seminars, which each count as 20 to 30 minutes of CPD, will cover the early detection and diagnosis of CKD and the impact this can have on progression of the disease, together with hints and tips on the balanced approach to managing progression of the condition.

The webinars are presented by leading experts and can be viewed on the Boehringer Academy website.
