In July 2018 the BNMS published the new Clinical Guideline for the measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) using plasma sampling.
This masterclass is an opportunity to meet the authors and learn about practical implementation of the guidelines.
- Review the role of GFR;
- Find out what referrers want to know;
- Learn how to implement the new guideline and improve the efficiency and quality of your GFR measurements.
