Expression of Interest - Free Webinar Series for Practice Nurses
Join us for a live 6-part monthly group webinar series about kidney disease management and earn 6 hours of CPD.

The EPIK Research Project is evaluating a training program for practice nurses in the early identification and management of chronic kidney disease.

Phase 1 of this project worked with practice nurses (PNs) to develop an online training program that assists small groups of nurses in the identification and management of chronic kidney disease. This current phase is being offered to PNs from a large number of general practices across Australia to test whether the program is applicable in a wide variety of settings.

The Northern NSW Local Health District in partnership with Healthy North Coast, Southern Cross University, the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation and Nordocs invites you to be part of phase 2 of this local research project. 

The project aims to increase the identification and improve the management of chronic kidney disease in general practice. We will also monitor the effectiveness of the webinar format for delivery of the program that was first developed in local general practices in 2017-19.

Each webinar series will be limited to a maximum of 15 practice nurses. Participants are expected to attend the hour-long webinars and complete a 15 minute online questionnaire before and after the series as well as a 5 minute online satisfaction survey after each session. All responses are de-identified.

Webinars will be hosted by Northern NSW LHD renal nurse specialists.
