Anemia of chronic kidney disease (AoCKD)—while a common complication—poses a challenge for many clinicians in primary care. Closer screening and earlier initiation of treatment have the potential to lower the risks of mortality and morbidity associated with this condition, improve quality of life, and reduce healthcare disparities, yet many clinicians fall short of these goals. This brief session gives you the tools you need to identify this condition early and initiate appropriate and effective treatment. Primary care clinicians play an integral role in improving health outcomes in this serious complication, and attending this session is a key step in achieving this goal.

Health disparities related to kidney disease are significant, particularly as they relate to African American populations who have a four-fold increased risk for kidney failure when compared to majority populations. Hispanic Latino and Native American populations also see an increased risk for kidney problems related to a higher prevalence of diabetes and hypertension. We will review the best strategies for early detection, risk stratification, and the treatment of chronic kidney disease.
