About the Renal Medicine programme

The Renal Association, supported by the Royal College of Physicians, working in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare has developed the Kidn-e elearning resource to support renal medicine.

Kidn-e provides easily accessible elearning to support the training of junior doctors (FYs and those in the early years of specialist training) on the most common and important renal conditions, acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Patients with these conditions are seen by doctors working in all specialties – medical, surgical, and primary care – and enhanced awareness and knowledge of them will enable all practising clinicians to provide better care for their patients.

There is a total of 15 high quality interactive elearning sessions available in the Kidn-e programme.

About the content

High resolution images, videos, animations and assessments will engage you throughout the learning process. You will be encouraged to plan and record your learning and use your newly acquired knowledge to reflect on your clinical practice.

Kidn-e will be available, free of charge, to all clinicians in the NHS throughout the UK. Once registered, you will be able to access each 20-30 minute session via the internet from work or home.
