Researchers at the University of Calgary are seeking participants to test a novel website to support adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD).

The website provides information on topics relevant to managing CKD; the ability to create a customized food list and a tailored question list to bring to your health care provider; as well as resources to support you.

You are eligible if you:

  • Have chronic kidney disease and not on dialysis
  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Can read and write English
  • Live in Canada
  • Have access to a device with an internet connection
