CKD.QLD (Chronic kidney disease in Queensland)



CKD.QLD is a statewide collaborative multidisciplinary research and practice program, established in July 2009, which encompasses a chronic kidney disease (CKD) registry, database and practice network, with the purpose of improving CKD patient outcomes and building capacity in CKD research.

The goal of CKD.QLD is to further improve health outcomes for CKD patients both in primary and specialist care, to conduct CKD epidemiological research and much needed high quality clinical trials, to identify means of early CKD detection using novel biomarkers, to assess and improve CKD models of care and hence achieve efficiencies in CKD service delivery, and to support health policy and planning for CKD and its many associated co-morbidities.

CKD.QLD is an initiative of the University of Queensland's Centre for Chronic Disease, in partnership with Queensland Health.
