“When I was asked to attend the Can-SOLVE CKD workshop in June 2015, I was honoured and humbled to be part of this exciting initiative. This initiative has the ability and scope to be able to assist people struggling with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) by looking at testing and optimizing treatments and patient-focused care to improve the outcomes and quality of life for patients and their families. The research program will also identify and support those at the highest risk of developing CKD, including all Indigenous people.” Read more
“Finding ways to diagnosis patients earlier and to delay progression are important to me. These are a few reasons why I got involved in the Can-SOLVE CKD initiative. Research is how we are going to move forward, find solutions and make a change. Can-SOLVE CKD is an extensive grant outlining so many important projects and initiatives. The involvement of patients has been placed front and centre, engaging us in discussions, workshops and reviewing each step along the way.” Read more
“Personally, participating in the Can-SOLVE CKD activities so far has been quite a moving experience while living with the serious impact of CKD: I felt inspired and enlightened with a new road to walk on. Being involved in Can-SOLVE CKD is an opportunity to bring an awareness and a message to all who are dealing with CKD, especially the marginalized of our society. They need care, love and knowledge of CKD so they can have a chance to a good life.” Read more
In fond memory of those patient partners who are no longer with us, but whose passion and enthusiasm live on in our work each day.
