Kidney March - Calgary to K Country - September, 2015

Will you be a ray of hope? A beacon of light? An agent of POSSIBILTY? To plant the boldest flag humanity has ever attempted in the fight against kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation. Will you join Kidney March? 

As a Marcher or Crew you’ll spend 3 days in the picturesque foothills of K-country and Calgary on an inspirational 100 km journey. The cause is what brings people to the March, but the experience of the weekend is what keeps bringing people back. For friends, family, medical staff and people living with chronic illness, this march becomes their outlet.  Somewhere they can make a difference on par with the level of frustration, anger and despair they feel for the burden of illness. It is also their hope. Not only for early detection and a cure for kidney disease, but also for ground breaking medical advancements.
Kidney March is an experience of a lifetime. Let the wave of Kidney March, and all the people who make up this great community, embrace you in making the biggest difference you’ve ever made. You can do this.

New Online Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Clinical Pathway for Primary Care Providers

The Interdisciplinary Chronic Disease Collaboration, Northern and Southern Alberta Renal Programs, Alberta Health Services and key CKD stakeholders (primary care physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and nephrologists) have developed an online CKD Clinical Pathway for primary care providers.  This pathway will assist primary care givers in the diagnosis, medical management and referral of adults with CKD in line with best practices as documented in local and national guidelines. The pathway can be accessed at www.ckdpathway.ca. It is also a great resource for patients as they are an advocate in their own health.
