CANNT’s dedication to nephrology professional practice and quality patient care is evidenced through it’s support of the development and implementation of CANNT Standards of Practice for Nephrology Nurses and Technologists.
These evidenced-based standards have been developed by a team of Canadian professionals in nephrology technology and nursing.
The CANNT nursing standards have been developed to be congruent with national and provincial standards. They are broad in scope, and allow for institutional and provincial interpretation and variation by providing a framework for nephrology nursing practice.
The nursing practice recommendations are a companion document for the nephrology nursing standards. These recommendations address the areas of chronic illness management, conservative management, advance care planning, palliative care, patient education and self management, blood pressure management, anemia, bone and mineral metabolism, nutrition and diet therapy, diabetes management, cardiovascular risk factor management, chronic kidney disease stage 1-5, hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, self managed dialysis, and transplantation. The revised standards also now include information on acute kidney Injury and ethics.
CANNT gratefully acknowledges Amgen Canada for their support in the cost of translating these standards into French.
