New Patient Information Leaflets

 

The Renal Association’s Patient Information Sub-committee aims to develop and maintain a high quality patient information resource for use by kidney doctors, patients, families and carers in the UK. The work is carried out in partnership with Kidney Care UK

The first round of leaflets have now been published on the RA website. This includes a leaflet on Pregnancy and Chronic Kidney Disease to tie in with 2018’s World Kidney Day theme of Kidney Disease and Women’s Health and written by the Pregnancy and CKD Rare Disease Group.
