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.
