             Patient Survey Results on Patient View

            T        he Transforming Participation in CKD (TP-CKD) programme is rapidly gaining momentum and we want to

                    tell you about the exciting progress being made.
                    The TP-CKD programme is about supporting and helping patients with kidney problems develop the
                    knowledge, skills and confidence they need to be involved in actively managing their own health care.
                    This is known as patient activation. We are also interested in understanding how kidney problems affect
            the way people with CKD live their lives.
            Kidney patients from 10 renal units have completed the ‘Your Health Survey’ which measures how involved they
            feel they are with their own health care, what symptoms they have and how
            they feel they are managing their day to day life.
            The TP-CKD results of the ‘Your Health Survey’ can be viewed on Patient View
            screens. For more information on the programme please visit the Think Kidneys
