2022 Can-SOLVE CKD Network Impact Report

2023 Impact Report

2023 was a transitional period for the network as the wind-down of Phase 1 research and capacity building activities took place in parallel to the start of Phase 2 knowledge mobilization activities.

This year, we celebrated the release of the Knowledge Keepers in Research video series as well as our patient-oriented research training modules. We published new and vital knowledge from our research projects and relaunched KidneyLink, a platform that connects patients to Canadian kidney research.

2022 Can-SOLVE CKD Network Impact Report

2021/22 Impact Report

2022 was a milestone year marked by reflection, celebration, and looking to the future. We were thrilled to launch our second phase in April with more than $11.8 million in new funding. This is a significant boost for Canadian kidney research that builds upon the successes of our first phase and creates new opportunities to mobilize innovations in diagnosis, treatment, and care that will enhance kidney health. We also celebrate all that we have built and achieved: mobilizing new knowledge about kidney health, advancing Indigenous cultural competency, and enhancing Canada’s capacity for innovative kidney research. Most of all, we have led a culture change in research that has placed patients and their experiences at the forefront.
