Patients with pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) require special considerations in the management of this complicated condition. These patients may need to see multiple providers, take a variety of medications, or go to the hospital frequently. Healthcare providers caring for these patients may be unaware of their impaired renal function or be unfamiliar with current recommendations in the management of CKD. Given the complexity of their health needs, patients with CKD are susceptible to a wide array of medical errors.

You are invited to look at the information posted on this website. The material is meant to alert you to the special care that patients with chronic kidney disease might need. The information is intended to serve as a guide to safe care in CKD and to reduce the number of medical errors in this population.

Let us know how you feel about the information by filling out the survey included on the website. The survey does not collect your personal information, and there is no cost. The answers you provide will help us make this a better information source for patients and providers.

The material on this website was developed and assembled by Dr. Jeffrey C. Fink, M.D., M.S., staff nephrologist, Associate Professor, and Director of the Early Renal Insufficiency (ERI) Program in collaboration with the staff of the ERI Program and the Safe Kidney Care Project, at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine. Funding was provided by grant R01 DK084017 from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases of the National Institutes of Health.
