  • Overview

    This activity addresses the challenges of managing hyperkalemia in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) with co-existing conditions. Find out how CKD, heart failure, and hyperkalemia impact adherence to renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASi) therapy, a critical approach for these patients. Our experts also have insights on the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration among healthcare professionals in managing complex cases like hyperkalemia in patients with CKD.
