Recruiting BC Primary Care Clinicians for research project integrating risk-based care for patients with chronic kidney disease in the community

The objective of this study is to introduce a kidney failure risk equation tool and education into primary care clinics to help provide information to clinicians about patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and provide guidance for all aspects of CKD care. 

This is a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT) being done in collaboration with the Canadian Primary Care Sentinel Surveillance Network (CPCSSN). Primary care clinics will be randomized to either receive the intervention (where patients and providers receive individualized information explaining kidney failure risk, as well as risk-based criteria for referral, alongside usual care) vs. usual care alone (no information on personalized risk and no risk-based referral). 

Each clinic will receive $1,000 for their participation in the project.
