Activity Description

Ureterolithiasis, commonly known as kidney stones, is a prevalent and burdensome urological condition affecting millions worldwide. Characterized by the formation of mineral deposits within the urinary tract, ureterolithiasis presents with excruciating flank pain and various associated symptoms, posing significant challenges to patients and healthcare providers alike. Despite its often acute and debilitating nature, ureterolithiasis typically follows a benign course, with many stones passing spontaneously. However, the potential for severe complications necessitates prompt and effective management strategies. 

This activity for healthcare workers is designed to enhance learners’ proficiency in evaluating and managing ureterolithiasis. A comprehensive overview of ureterolithiasis, encompassing its epidemiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic modalities, treatment options, and preventive measures, is provided. Participants develop a deep understanding of the pathophysiology of this disease and relate the process to its manifestations. Learners improve skills in clinical assessment, differential diagnosis, and applying evidence-based evaluation and treatment strategies, preparing them to collaborate within an interprofessional team caring for patients with ureterolothiasis.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Identify the signs and symptoms indicative of ureterolithiasis.

  • Implement a clinically guided diagnostic plan for a patient with possible ureteral calculi.

  • Apply an individualized management plan for an individual diagnosed with ureterolithiasis.

  • Collaborate effectively among interprofessional team members to improve outcomes and treatment efficacy for patients with ureterolithiasis.

  • Outline the pharmacologic therapy as it applies to Ureterolithiasis
