Geared towards rural paediatricians who are taking care of children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) outside of Kingston, Jamaica. The goal of the workshop is to train them to recognize CKD and to manage the children with CKD in between their visits to Kingston as many cannot afford to visit the capital as often as needed. The paediatric nephrology team will observe, advise, do further teaching and problem solving.
