EMIS: Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)


The second webinar in the series is being held on Tuesday 23 April. 12-1pm. Using digital systems to detect and manage patients for CKD

Register here:

We will focus on how to ‘Detect’ patients for CKD with the greatest need for intervention, monitoring or referral.

Given the high prevalence and high comorbidity profile of CKD the webinar will share tips on how to use CDRC for CKD – (Clinical Digital Resource Collaborative) to effectively manage the CKD population in a way that supports achievement of other Cardiovascular QoF targets.

The webinar will also support HCP’s in understanding which patients to refer to Renal services and how to do this using easy to access validated risk assessment tools.

To get a flavour of the CDRC CKD functionality ahead of the webinar please follow this video link to see a short demonstration by Dr Tom Zamoyski:


A series of webinars about CKD and the resources available to help you to improve outcomes for people with CKD.

Join Health Innovation North East and North Cumbria (HI NENC) this National Kidney Month, as we introduce our new Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) programme. The programme will focus on early diagnosis and early medical treatment of people with CKD, to slow disease progression and reduce the development of cardiovascular comorbidity.

This webinar is the first in a series of three webinars for all staff working in Primary Care Networks (PCNs) including Nurse practitioners, ARRS roles/Pharmacists and GP’s. Throughout the series, attendees can expect to learn more about CKD and the resources available to help you to improve outcomes for people with CKD.

Chronic kidney disease affects one in 10 adults in the UK, costing the NHS £1.5 billion a year. In the North East and North Cumbria, there are 120, 470 patients with CKD according to QoF and 55,693 of these patients are within IMD quintiles 1 and 2.

Despite significantly increased health and care resources for CKD treatment, patients have a dramatically reduced life expectancy, and the condition has been recognised as the 3rd fastest growing cause of death globally.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the primary cause of morbidity and mortality in CKD – Epidemiological studies examining links between Chronic Kidney Disease and Cardiovascular disease expose high levels of multimorbodity; 40% of patients with Diabetes have Chronic Kidney Disease and up to 53% of patients with Heart Failure have chronic Kidney Disease which confers significant additional prognostic risk. Therefore, CKD must be considered one of the strongest risk factors for the development of CVD.CKD, chronic kidney disease; DM, diabetes mellitus; HF, heart failure Adapted from Vijay K, Neuen BL and Lerma EV.
