KDOQI CKD Guidelines 20th Anniversary
This podcast will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the very first clinical practice guideline for CKD which included recommendations for CKD classification and staging. We are joined by Dr. Kerry Willis, Chief Scientific Officer of the NKF, Dr. Andy Levey Professor of Medicine at Tufts Medical Center and Joe Coresh, Professor of Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and Mike Rocco, Chair of KDOQI and Professor of Medicine at Wake Forest Medical Center. The original workgroup for the CKD guideline published in 2002 in AJKD was chaired by Dr. Andy Levey and Dr. Coresh from Johns Hopkins for the adult section of the guideline and by Dr. Rob Portman for the Pediatric portion. This guideline had a profound impact on the clinical care of both adults and children with kidney disease and it also was a major catalyst for CKD research. The published guideline was cited by 3,500 journal articles and now has over 20 accompanying editorials. In 2012, the guideline was updated by the KDIGO and the classification stage was altered to include information on urine albumin excretion. But overall, the CKD staging system basically remains and in this podcast, we talk about how the guideline influenced clinical care, research and even policy.

The NKF Patient Network
After almost two years of collaboration with volunteer advisory committees—comprised of nephrologists, patient advocates, and researchers in academia and the private sector—the NKF Patient Network is live! On this episode of Life as a Nephrologist, we are joined by Kerry Willis, Lesley Inker, Alexander Chang, Cari Maxwell and Curtis Warfield. Our guests begin the episode by explaining how the patient network journey started and the purpose of creating it. It is the only kidney disease registry that has both patient-entered data and electronic medical records for patients with all stages of kidney disease. By joining the network, patients will not only help build this important data set, but they will have access to on-going clinical trials; health tips; individualized patient education for their specific stage of the disease; and a community of other patients. The user friendly and secure Network collects both rigorous clinical and laboratory data from electronic health records (EHR), in addition to patient-entered data, which together allow for a complete picture of the patient experience. This model is innovative in that most research initiatives follow one path or the other—EHR or patient self-reporting. The NKF Patient Network will compile data on demographics, medical history, lifestyle, medications, blood and urine test results, in addition to extensive data on patient perceptions, challenges, and priorities. Overall, this network will allow patients to grow their voice, be transparent about their struggles and advocate for themselves.

Palliative Care and Nephrology with Dr. Holly Koncicki
On this episode, Corey is joined by our guest, Holly M. Koncicki, Associate Professor of Nephrology and Palliative Care at Mount Sinai. Dr. Koncicki is in the Division of Nephrology and Brookdale Department of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. First, Dr. Koncicki discusses what inspired her to become a nephrologist and how she became interested in palliative care. Corey and Dr. Koncicki review data from To Dialysis and Beyond: The Nephrologist’s Responsibility for Advance Care Planning. She offers advice on decisions about modality for advance kidney disease patients and dialysis. She notes how is it not only important to work well with the interdisciplinary team, but it’s crucial to coordinate with the patient’s other providers, such as their cardiologist, oncologists, etc. The conversation about the patient’s care needs to continue overtime and the care team must be on the same page in order to make it less difficult for the patient. In relation to advanced care planning and dialysis, they talk about over discussing and reflecting on conversations to match patient values. They expand upon dialysis versus conservative management: How do you objectively tell your patients they would not do well on dialysis? How do we assess who is at a high risk of having poor outcomes on dialysis? How do we get doctors to think about conservative kidney management? They wrap up by discussing Dr. Koncicki’s AJKD article Opioid Management in CKD and how doctors should appropriately select opioids as well as the importance of setting expectations for patients. Get Involved with our Kidney Outreach Team The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Outreach Team is a growing group of professionals and community leaders who use their experiences and expertise to inform elected officials and other key decision makers on kidney-related legislation, policies, research, programs and education.

Episode 20: International Medical Graduates in Nephrology: A Guide for Trainees and Programs
In this episode, we discuss the recently published ACKD article, “International Medical Graduates in Nephrology: A Guide for Trainees and Programs” Our guests are the authors, Javier Neyra, Maria Clarissa Tio, Silvia Ferrè and the co-editors Matthew Sparks and Samira Farouk. Although international medical graduates are offered opportunities for training and professional growth that are beyond those available in their countries of origin, they typically encounter barriers to transition from training to practice and early-stage career development. The authors describe the exchange visitor and temporary worker visas granted to foreign trainees in the U.S, focusing on the transition from training to nephrology practice and/or research. They provide recommendations and encourage trainees to seek continuous support from their programs/sponsors and assistance from immigration representatives at their training institutions. This episode provides a positive message that there are many pathways to arrive at the desired post-training destination and emphasizes how additional funding opportunities are there! Ultimately, these authors will not let you navigate blindly. We are bringing on a new co-host for this month’s episode, please help us welcome Natasha Dave, MD! She is a nephrologist at the Bruce W. Carter Miami Veterans Affair Medical Center. She completed her internal medicine residency training at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago and then completed her Nephrology fellowship and chief year at Baylor in Houston.

Episode: 19: Telehealth with Eric Wallace, M.D., FASN
This episode we bring on Eric L. Wallace, M.D., FASN, Director of Home Dialysis at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and Medical Director of Telehealth. Telehealth allows patients to teleconference and/or have telephone conversations with their existing doctor(s). In today’s environment, with many provider offices still closed, this may be a good solution and/or alternative for patients to continue their existing care under the direction of their provider via teleconference. Dr. Wallace discusses his journey to becoming an expert in telemedicine and the challenges that come with the territory. He explains how you can accomplish a lot over the phone in nephrology, but there can be issues with technology, internet connection (especially for patients in rural areas), and tech literacy. Lastly, he explains how socioeconomics play a huge role in Telehealth, public health and public education issues, techniques to improve your phone calls with patients, and the future of Telehealth.
