This lay/patient group has been set up for renal patients and renal clinicians to come together to discuss some of the following:

  • Lay/patient input into research project design and grant applications
  • Facilitate surveys/questionnaires of specific patient groups to inform the research agenda
  • Communicate research results to the patient and carer population
  • Identify patients to undertake specific roles in research (e.g. patient co-applicants or committee members)
