Learning Objectives: 

The renal unit was created in 1992, following the appointment of the first lecturer in renal medicine by the affiliate University of Port Harcourt . The state of renal service today is:

  • Provision of PD for adults is poor therefore the modality of choice is HD which severely restricted program expansion to meet needs
  • The mean age for patients with ESRF requiring haemodialysis is early 40s
  • Only 3-5% of all patients with ESRD get some form of HD treatment HAEMODIALYSIS SERVICE (2015)
  • Number of functional haemodialysis stations – 4Average no of HD per week 0.18 Averager duration of patients on HD 4 months, Case Fatality within 6 months of 90%, Therefore the principal areas that need support
    1. Acute PD service provision : Through the ISN fellow program, doctors will offered the opportunity of hands on training and acquisition of skills to set up a PD program to manage AKI. Salford Royal Hospital has the largest PD program in the North West of England (115 patients) with 4 edacades of experience.
    2. Interventional Nephrology: Insertion of permanent HD CVC, Renal Biopsy, Insertion of PD cannula
    3. Support continuous medical education including via fellowships, exchange programmes, web cas. 

 

Program: 

The proposed measures are the development of PD program through capacity building by training ISN fellows and nurses.
Organising CME through the ISN Educational Ambassador program AKI preventive initiative : As acute kidney injury contributes to high mortality and emerging evidence suggests can be prevented by better recognition and basic medical care. Studies by Emem-Chioma et 2012 suggest a mortality of 43.5%
