Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is common, affecting approximately 9% of the adult population in Canada.

Primary care physicians and allied health care professionals play an important role in the identification, management and referral of patients with CKD.

The Interdisciplinary Chronic Disease Collaboration, Northern and Southern Alberta Renal Programs, Alberta Health Services and key CKD stakeholders (primary care physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and nephrologists) have developed an online CKD Clinical Pathway for primary care providers.  This pathway will assist you in the diagnosis, medical management and referral of adults with CKD in line with best practices as documented in local and national guidelines.

The pathway can be accessed in the following ways:

  1.  Via webpage www.ckdpathway.ca
  2. COMING SOON: Via embedded URL link in your patients’ eGFR and urine lab test results. This prompt will direct you to the online pathway where you will be provided with information to guide diagnosis, management and referral of adult patients with CKD.
