Renal Dosing Optimization

Best practices for renal dose optimization and standardization 

It’s estimated that 13.4% of the world’s population suffers from chronic kidney disease, with 20% of hospitalized adults experiencing acute kidney injury.

The complexity of comorbid disease states and occurrence of polypharmacy, necessitates scrutiny to avoid medication errors. Clinical pharmacists’ evaluation of drug dosing regimens is an essential part of individualized pharmacotherapy and they have a tremendous impact in ensuring the safe and effective delivery of medications.

Optimization of medication dosing to ensure each patient has the “right dose” and standardization of formulary across hospitals are key focus areas for clinical pharmacy, as teams are dealing with increasingly complex patient populations. Because of this, now more than ever, pharmacy teams are looking to leverage experts, tools, and technology they trust to support their renal dosing optimization efforts and standardization of renal dosing protocols across facilities to improve patient safety.

In this webinar we discuss:

  • The history of FDA guidance regarding kidney function estimating equations.
  • The clinical practice implications that impact renal dosing therapy, ensuring each patient has the right dose for optimal outcomes.
  • How pharmacy teams are leveraging expert tools and technology to optimize renal dosing and standardize renal dosing protocols.
