The ASSIST-CKD quality improvement project, managed by Kidney Research UK and supported by The Health Foundation, focuses on scaling-up an intervention that reports kidney function (eGFR) graphs over time to primary care. The aim is to identify patients at highest risk of CKD progression – a simple concept which not only offers value for money but also a real chance to improve renal patient journeys.
The project involves 23 renal units and pathology laboratories and their surrounding GP practices, covering an estimated population of 11-12 million people in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
This website is intended for the participating sites and is structured so that you should be able to access software, supporting documents and other materials that you will need in carrying out the project. It is likely that the site will evolve over time with new materials added as the project progresses.
