Surveys

Survey into Women's Health

Help address women's health disparities. Despite comprising 51% of the population, women face unique healthcare challenges outlined in the 2022 Women’s Health Strategy for England. UK Nephrologists are conducting a brief survey to understand confidence and practices in managing women's health. Your anonymous input, through a quick 23-question Google Forms survey, will aid in developing resources for improved education and training in this vital area. 

 

AKI Support Resources

Do you have AKI nurses in your Trust? Do you have an AKI lead? Does your organisation have an AKI bundle? Take this quick survey, co-designed with the Society for Acute Medicine, to help us understand what AKI support is currently available in the UK. 

 

Follow-up with Nephrology Specialists after Hospitalization with Acute Kidney Injury: A Survey of Nephrologists

Consultants are invited to participate in an international survey of nephrologists to determine factors that influence recommendations for nephrology specialty follow-up after hospital discharge of patients with AKI. This survey will help to develop recommendations for appropriate, acceptable, and efficient nephrology care following transition to the community for patients who have had AKI. Complete the survey here.

 

Staff Feedback: Using the Difficult Conversations Booklet

Have you used the Difficult Conversations Guide for Health Professionals in the last 6 months? If so, we would love some feedback. Our team would like to develop some online training to accompany the booklet. Your views are vital to help us plan our next steps. Please complete the survey and contact Anna Winterbottom with any questions.

 

Climate Change, Kidney Care and Sustainability

This ISN survey aims to ascertain the kidney care community’s views on the impact of climate change on the health of people with kidney diseases and the environmental burden of kidney care practices. It is open for participation by doctors, nurses, physicians, technicians, dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, trainees, or anyone involved in taking care of people with kidney diseases. Your responses will help identify practice and research priorities and advocate for environmentally sustainable nephrology practices. 

 

Dialyzer Reactions

‘Dialyzer Reactions’ are commonly encountered across the haemodialysis community. The exposure of a patient’s blood to the dialysis membrane has been recognised as the origin for several decades, termed bioimcompatibility. Despite advances in technology, clinicians continue to see these ‘pseudo-anaphylactic’ reactions in modern-day practice. There is, however, variation in identification and management of these patients. Please help us understand the prevalence, diagnosis and management of patients experiencing ‘dialyser reactions’ to define best practice by completing this short survey.
