Lecture on autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease

My practice has a number of nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The partners do quarterly teaching sessions for them. It is some of my favorite teaching. They come to each session with a lot of experience and the sessions are more like guided conversations rather than traditional lectures. I usually try to frame the session with a clinical practice guideline and we just go through it step by step. This time I did autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. I couldn't find a clinical practice guideline, so I just went with the KDIGO Controversies paper and went from there.

Update from Twitter (where else?)

The slides:

We use these to make sure we cover all aspects of the disease during the session. They really don't stand alone. They serve primarily as an outline of the conversation.
