Chronic Kidney Disease in Queensland (CKD.QLD) was established in September 2009 with the purpose of supporting a better understanding of kidney disease within the State (estimated at 13% of the adult population). Queensland Health, through which most Queenslanders receive care, is the sole public health provider. CKD.QLD works in collaboration with all Queensland Health public sector renal practices.
Our first Research objective is to obtain a better understanding of CKD patients and their management across the State, by establishing and maintaining a Database and Registry. This database & registry will record current and long-term patient outcomes and clinical practice patterns. The database & registry will be unique Nationally, and will provide support & information for CKD health practitioners, Queensland Health, national groups such as the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and most importantly, CKD patients.
