The Registry quality improvement team presented TP-CKD at sessions throughout UK Kidney Week this year.
You can view the abstracts that were presented by clicking on the links below:
- Associations Between Patient Activation, Patient Characteristics and Patient Outcomes
- Implementing a national adult Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM) for kidney patients
- Routine Collection of Patient Reported Outcome Measures and Renal Unit Cultural Characteristics
There were also several fantastic presentations citing TP-CKD or sharing experiences of collecting Your Heath Survey from renal units who have worked closely with the TP-CKD team:
- A cross-sectional analysis of patient activation measures in pre-dialysis and centre-based haemodialysis , presentation by Debbie Douglas, Sheffield Kidney Institute
- A comparison of patient activation in renal transplant recipients and haemodialysis patients, presentation by Rachel Fraser, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals
- The Experience of Chronic Kidney Disease Patients: The Results of the 2017 UK Renal Registry / Kidney Care UK Chronic Kidney Disease Patient Reported Experience Measure, presentation by Janine Hawkins and David Welsted, University of Hertfordshire
The conference culminated in a session entitled which outcomes matter to patients? Michael Walsh shared his experiences implementing patient reported measures in Canada. It reflected the experiences of the TP-CKD programme and it was great to talk these through with him before and after his talk. There was also a fantastic presentation by Alison Tong from the SONG initiative.
