Chronic kidney disease is usually first identified by primary care clinicians. This publication outlines best practice for identifying and managing chronic kidney disease in primary care, and is intended as a guide for primary care clinicians and managers in both funder and provider organisations. It covers:

  • the classification of chronic kidney disease
  • the risk factors for chronic kidney disease
  • best practice in detection and management of chronic kidney diseasein primary care
  • and key enablers for best practice management

Two initiatives in best practice management in primary care are described, using an electronic desktop tool to facilitate detection and management of chronic kidney disease, and nurse-led clinics to intensively manage high risk patients with chronic kidney disease.
