Information for
Clinicians

Clinical caregivers are central to advances for patients with kidney diseases. As key stakeholders, clinicians can increase awareness and participation in the KPMP. Readily available study information and videos of patient experiences are provided to bring the KPMP to a broad clinical community.

Study criteria

KPMP enrolls participants with CKD or AKI. CKD participants may have diabetic kidney disease or hypertensive kidney disease. Inclusion criteria for each study cohort and the general exclusion critieria is listed below.

Inclusion

  • eGFR 30-59mL/min/1.73m2 OR
  • eGFR ≥ 60 with UPCR >150mg/g or UACR >30 mg/g

Hypertensive Kidney Disease

  • eGFR30-59/min/1.73m2 with UPCR or UACR
  • eGFR ≥ 60 with UACR 30-2000mg/g or UPCR 150-2000 mg/g

Acute Kidney Injury

  • Baseline eGFR >45mL/min/1.73m2
  • Elevated serum creatinine ≥1.5x baseline, AND one of the following:
