Kidney Check team members from across Canada headed to Winnipeg for training in Kidney Check processes and procedures. The August training included specific information on equipment and procedures for point of care testing equipment including transporting samples, quality assurance and standard operating procedures.
Training also provided more broad information about the model of care, kidney disease, the kidney failure risk equation and community engagement. Other topics included Traditional knowledge and protocols as well as information specific to a pediatric population.
Screening dates and locations are being determined as teams work with community partners to make plans to implement screening. Community leadership and members will help guide planning for screening in their communities to ensure efforts suit the needs of the community and offer the best chance for a successful implementation.
