Our Can-SOLVE CKD research project entitled “KFRE: Integrating risk-based care for patients with CKD in the community” was recently featured in a new CTV News Winnipeg spotlight! Our project lead, Dr. Navdeep Tangri, and Can-SOLVE CKD Patient Partner, Cathy Woods, discuss the project’s goals, and how the kidney failure risk equation (KFRE) can be used as a tool for diagnoses.
Using the patient’s Urine, Sex, Age and Glomerular Filtration Rate, the kidney failure risk equation provides the 2 and 5 year probability of treated kidney failure for a potential patient with CKD stage 3 to 5. The equation has been validated in more than 30 countries worldwide, making it the most accurate and efficient way of finding out the patient’s risk.
