I feel more confident in assessing patients and endeavour to identify patients at risk. There is a lot of information to absorb but feel that I have grasped the main symptoms of patients with potential renal deterioration, and would recommend this course to my fellow collegues.

Great resource, reaffirmed knowledge that I had learnt about AKI and also expanded my knowledge in relation to the GFR and Creatinine clearance rates.

I found this an informative learning presentation but l feel that the educator was not engaging. She was very knowledgeable but her delivery was bland and monotone.
