In this activity, based on a recent live webcast, a panel of experts offers insight into best practices regarding the treatment of anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and emphasizes that the success of employing current (and future) treatments falls on the members of the interdisciplinary nephrology care team. Foundational guidance is combined with a discussion of real cases to further highlight new developments in the management of anemia associated with CKD and provide practical guidance on the integration of such advances. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Describe the prevalence, clinical impact, and pathogenesis of anemia in CKD, Identify benefits and limitations associated with current management approaches to anemia in CKD, Recognize the mechanism of action of emerging hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PH) inhibitors in the management of anemia in CKD, Assess safety and efficacy data supporting HIF-PH inhibitor use in patients with anemia in CKD, Employ strategies to treat anemia in CKD in accordance with current evidence, expert recommendations, and individual patient needs.
