UKRDC Cohort Selection

Patients should be included in the UKRDC Feed if the unit believes them to under their care and they meet one or more of the following criteria.

  • The patient has received RRT for the purposes of treating an acute renal condition.
  • The patient has received RRT for the purposes of treating a chronic renal condition.
  • The patient has been the recipient of a kidney transplant
  • The patient has an eGFR of below 30 (CKD2 or "worse"). This criteria would also capture patients on Conservative Management.
  • The patient has opted in to PatientView, RADAR or any other project that makes use of the UKRDC.

There should not be any age filter - i.e. "Adult" Renal Units should still include any patients under 18 that they treat.

If amendments/additions are made to the record of a patient who is deceased then these should still be sent to the UKRDC.
