SECTION 3 CREDITS:
Speaking Volumes 3: Portraits of PKD has been approved by the Canadian Society of Nephrology and is an accredited Self-Assessment Program (Section 3), as defined by the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Devised to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance, this program was made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from Otsuka Canada Pharmaceutical Inc. (OCPI).
To claim two (2) credits per hour of educational activity, you must complete the Self-Assessment Test, save your results and the Certificate of Completion, and enter this activity into MAINPORT (http://www.mainport.org).
This educational program was developed and reviewed by a panel of ten (10) Canadian nephrologists with experience in diagnosing and managing autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), and who have used ADPKD-specific medication in clinical trials and in real life.
There were no evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis and management of ADPKD at the time this program was developed. The opinions expressed in this program are those of the program faculty at the time the program was developed, and are not to be considered as directive.
