The Heart Foundation is partnering with the World Heart Federation to bring to you a health professional webinar exploring the latest evidence on CVD and chronic kidney disease, including early detection of renal risk factors for CVD. This event will be chaired by Prof Garry Jennings, Chief Medical Advisor of the Heart Foundation, and we will be joined by Professor George Bakris, internationally renowned nephrologist, as well as Australian experts as they discuss the latest evidence and how it can be translated into practical preventative care. 

Our international expert panel will discuss:

• The role of early detection of renal risk factors for cardiovascular disease

• Optimal management of lipids and blood pressure to slow progression of CKD and lower CVD risk.

• Explore the association between chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease in First Nations people.

•Multidisciplinary care for individuals living with CKD and CVD risk factors in general practice.
