Hyperkalaemia in Cardiorenal Disease – A Case Based Discussion
Don't miss this engaging educational roundtable discussion 'Hyperkalaemia in Cardiorenal Disease – A Case Based Discussion', moderated by Prof James Burton (University of Leicester, UK), a renowned international faculty will explore emerging data and the changing landscape of medical management of hyperkalaemia.
RAASi therapy serves part of the foundational treatment for heart failure and chronic kidney disease, but it is also a risk factor for hyperkalaemia. This conundrum poses challenges to physicians managing cardio-renal patients. To understand these challenges, we would like to canvass your current approach to hyperkalaemia management across several areas; these will form the basis of a unique, interactive educational event.
This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.
This programme, ‘Hyperkalaemia in Cardiorenal Disease Broadcast - A Case Based Discussion’ has been submitted to the European Board for Accreditation of Continuing Education for Health Professionals (EBAC) seeking 1 CME point, equating to 1 hour of learning.

Overview of the Delphi consensus undertaking
The learning objectives of this programme are:
- Describe the long-term risks from non-adherence to disease-modifying medical therapy in cardiorenal disease
- Use evidence-based strategies to prevent and treat hyperkalaemia in patients with an indication for RAASi therapy
- Recall current guideline recommendations on the use of potassium binding agents
- Describe an optimised approach for the management of patients at increased risk of, or experiencing hyperkalaemia
This programme is aimed at a global target audience of
- Heart Failure Specialists
- Primary Care Practitioners

Prof James Burton is Honorary Consultant Nephrologist and Professor of Renal Medicine and Associate Dean for Clinical Research at the University of Leicester, Leicester, UK. His principal research interests are the mechanisms underlying uraemic cardiovascular disease modification of cardiovascular risk in patients with end-stage renal disease and the identification and application of novel biomarkers.
In addition Prof Burton is involved in the development and running of clinical trials; he is Chief Investigator for the NIHR funded NightLife trial investigating the impact of nocturnal dialysis on patient outcomes as well as the Kidney Research UK funded CONFIRM study exploring the utility of a novel cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques in haemodialysis patients. Prof Burton is the independent Chair of two multi-centre NIHR Trial Steering Committees and sits on a number of others.
He is the current Chair of the UK Kidney Association Clinical Guidelines Committee and has himself chaired a number of UK guideline updates making sure that research translates into clinical practice.
