We’re excited to announce the launch of KidneyPro– a new online learning module that introduces you to the world of patient-oriented research. Users will explore the breadth and depth of kidney research in Canada and gain a better understanding of the patient role in kidney research. The self-directed module walks users through a general overview of health research in Canada as well as the landscape for kidney research. Kidney Pro gives you the opportunity to learn from real Can-SOLVE CKD patient-partners and researchers, and quiz yourself on your kidney research knowledge.
Major areas of learning include:
Understanding the research landscape
Learning about the specific roles that patients can play, outlining the different expectations and opportunities available as “patient participants” and “patient partners”
Learning about Indigenous patient partnership
Exploring ways to get involved in kidney research via KidneyLink
Kidney Pro was created by members of the Can-SOLVE CKD Network including members of the core team and patient partners. We would like to thank those that were involved in bringing this incredible resource to life: Eva Bernstein, Leah Getchell, Graham Pollock, Craig Settee, Alicia Murdoch, Marian Reich, Arlene Desjarlais, Dwight Sparkes, Ruth Sapir-Pichhadze, Elizabeth Fowler, Linnea Franson, and Sara Banai.
