This book tells the history of the treatment of people with kidney failure in New Zealand; beginning in the early 1950s this story encompasses remarkable experiences of patients and their families, and of the contributions made by dedicated health professionals. It also reveals the challenges and ethics of meeting an ever-increasing demand for treatment.

Dr Kelvin Lynn and his fellow editors tell us about the contribution of doctors, nurses, technicians, and patients and their families to the story of kidney treatment in New Zealand. Social and political changes in our country since the 1950s have critically influenced the development of treatment services for New Zealanders with kidney failure. The improvements in technology and community expectations regarding access to treatment over the past 50 years are discussed as well as the issues for patients and families coming to terms with kidney failure and its treatment.

This story is illustrated with many anecdotes and historical photographs.

SONG Study

JOIN THE SONG-KIDS DELPHI PANEL!

The Standardized Outcomes in Nephrology – Kids (SONG-Kids) is an international initiative that aims to identify outcomes that are important to children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease, their caregivers and families, clinicians, and other health professionals. This will inform the development of a core outcome set to be reported in all clinical trials (and other research) in children with chronic kidney disease (all stages), and ensure that trials report outcomes that are important and relevant for decision-making.

You are invited to participate in the SONG-Kids Delphi panel to achieve consensus (agreement) on the most important outcomes that should be included in the core outcome set for kidney disease. This involves completing a Delphi survey, which includes completing three rounds and each survey should take approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete. Round 1 is planned to close end-September/October 2018. All participants will receive a copy of the results. To join the SONG-Kids Delphi Panel, you can find the survey at:

Feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else who may be interested.

Thank you!
