Session Description:
Genetic testing in CKD is now widely available in developed countries. Exactly who to test remains  a source of debate. This session will feature two speakers arguing from different perspectives – that all patients with CKD should undergo genetic testing OR that only high risk CKD populations should undergo genetic testing.
Learning Objectives:
Understand how genetic testing has developed into a widely available clinical test. Identify the kinds of genetic causes of CKD that can be identified by genetic testing. Review the arguments for and against testing widely or only in high risk groups.
