Can-SOLVE CKD is uniquely placed to take a leadership role in strengthening Canada’s kidney research environment.
We are creating new tools, infrastructure, and training designed to bridge knowledge gaps and facilitate greater involvement of patient partners. Resources such as KidneyLink, the Canadian Nephrology Trials Network, and our training modules for patient-oriented research training will increase research participation, enable robust clinical trials, and increase the skills and knowledge of all who take part in patient-oriented research.
