#1
Francyne N Rosenstock
With the dearth of dialysis travel nurses, you can't afford to blacklist one unless it is for a legitimate egregious clinical or professional reason affecting patient care. In a case like that, most reputable staffing agencies would not want to employ the travel nurse either.

While it may never be "easy" to face these issues with patients, families, and caregivers, CSCKP hopes the best practices and tools outlined in this article, also available at www.kidney-supportivecare.org, will be helpful to renal professionals in providing quality supportive and end-of-life care to their patients. Encouraging and participating in shared decision making with patients and their loved ones can help all involved create an approach to care with which everyone is comfortable. The relationships formed through shared decision making will help keep the lines of communication open, which is essential as needs and prognosis change...

For the professional nephrology nurse, the interplay of certification, education, and professional association membership go hand-in-hand. The association provides the foundation, networking, and educational opportunities; certification validates skills and expertise; and education challenges and inspires the nurse to keep moving forward.

We wanted to examine the predictors of annual estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) decline during a five-year follow-up in elderly individuals with pre-existing chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 or greater (defined as baseline eGFR of less than 60 ml/min per 1.73 m2 or a urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio > 30 mg/g), and to examine the difference in risk factors when compared to a co-hort without CKD. Our research team identified 599 patients who were 65 years of age or older with and without CKD stage 3 or greater at baseline...

Biff F Palmer
Adaptive increases in renal and gastrointestinal excretion of K+ help to prevent hyperkalemia in patients with CKD as long as the GFR remains > 15-20 mL/min. Once the GFR falls below these values, the impact of factors known to adversely affect K+ homeostasis is significantly magnified. Impaired renal K+ excretion can be the result of conditions that severely limit distal Na+ delivery, decreased mineralocorticoid levels or activity, or a distal tubular defect (Table 2). In clinical practice, hyperkalemia is usually the result of a combination of factors superimposed on renal dysfunction...
