SBRI competition: technology-based solutions for patient empowerment and sustainability in kidney care

The Department of Health and the National Institute for Health Research Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative (NIHR D4D HTC) are collaborating to launch a new Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition to find innovative technology based solutions in Kidney Care. The focus is on technologies that can make a difference to patients over the whole spectrum of kidney disease ranging from earlier diagnosis and prevention through to treatment of advanced stages of kidney failure. An important goal would be to promote patient empowerment and/or sustainable practices throughout the patient care pathway. 

Bradford and Bristol Royal share the 2013 Green Nephrology Award

The 2013 Green Nephrology Award (for sustainability initiatives in kidney units) went to joint winners, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children and Bradford Teaching Hospitals. Both kidney units demonstrated significant environmental as well as financial savings, while maintaining the quality of care for dialysis patients. 

Don't forget to register for the Green Nephrology Summit on 25 September

This is the yearly get-together of the Green Nephrology Network, where ideas and experiences are exchanged for sustainable kidney care. Everyone is welcome. This year's programme covers best practice examples such as laboratory eGFR screening and exercise programmes in CKD, as well as debates on how to get your clinical director on board, building patient networks, and whether to abandon plastic cannisters of acid concentrate in favour of bulk systems.
