Welcome to 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 CKD registry, database and practice network, with the purpose of improving CKD patient outcomes and building capacity in CKD research.

The goals of CKD.QLD is to further improve health outcomes for people with chronic kidney disease, 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.

In 2015, the CKD.QLD collaborative was successful in receiving funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council to establish Australias' first chronic kidney disease Centre of Research Excellence [NHMRC CKD.CRE].
