Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a growing health problem of epidemic proportions both in the United States and worldwide. The care of CKD patients, before and after starting dialysis, remains highly fragmented resulting in suboptimal clinical outcomes and high costs, creating a high burden of disease on patients and the health care system. Disease management (DM) is an approach to coordinating care for this complex population of patients that has the promise of improving outcomes and…

Transitions of care management in CKD: critical thinking and improving strategies
TLDR
The aim should be to achieve a more comprehensive and appropriate health management than a limited focus on CKD modality treatment, raising awareness of areas in need of improvement in patient care.
Management of chronic kidney disease in primary health care: position paper of the European Forum for Primary Care.
TLDR
This position statement provides evidence-based screening recommendations and interventions for shared care between GPs/FDs and specialists on CKD management in different stages and focuses on key references published since the year 2000.
Chronic Kidney Disease Management Programmes and Patient Education
TLDR
To be optimally effective, the CKD management programme must be designed not only to reduce the progression of CKD and improve the management of complications resulting from CKD but also to reduced the morbidity and mortality of the comorbidities frequently associated with CKD principally hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
PARTNERS IN RESEARCH: Developing a Patient-Centered Research Agenda for Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
The CKD and end-stage renal disease population represents less than 1% of the total Medicare population, but it has accounted for about 7% of Medicare fee-for-service spending in recent years (over $30 billion).
Patterns of Care and Outcomes in Cardiovascular Disease After Kidney Transplantation in the United States
TLDR
Inpatient CVD care is increasing over time for kidney transplant patients, accounting for 30% of all post-transplant hospitalizations, and variation exists in the inpatient care, outcomes, and costs between by hospital type.
Assessing the Delivery of Coordinated Care to Patients with Advanced Chronic Kidney Disease in Ontario, Canada: A Survey of Patients and Healthcare Professionals
TLDR
It is suggested that care for patients with advanced CKD in Ontario is not consistently coordinated and there is a need to improve professional awareness of and linkages to home- and community-based services.
A nurse-coordinated model of care versus usual care for stage 3/4 chronic kidney disease in the community: a randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Patients with stage 3/4 CKD identified through community laboratories largely had nonprogressive kidney disease but had cardiovascular risk and the nurse-coordinated team did not affect rate of GFR decline or control of most risk factors compared with usual care.
Impacting the Trajectory of Chronic Kidney Disease With ARPN-Led Renal Teams
Health care reform demands improvements in population health and the patient experience while reducing costs. This demand is referred to as The Triple Aim of Improvement. A sense of urgency must be
Predialysis Nephrology Care and Costs in Elderly Patients Initiating Dialysis
TLDR
Greater intensity of predialysis nephrology care was associated with fewer hospital days and lower total healthcare costs during the year after dialysis initiation, even though patients survived longer.
Hemodialysis Patient Care in Renal Dialysis Unit among Selected Hospitals in the Sultanate of Oman
TLDR
A literature review was conducted through sources of data base available in the Medline/Pub Med, Google Scholar, Science Direct, and EBSCO Academic Search Complete for studies published in Gulf countries and found 14 studies were found to be related to the domains of hemodialysis patient care in the Sultanate of Oman.

TLDR
This guideline contains brief reference to diagnosis and clinical interventions and can serve as a "road map" linking other clinical practice guidelines and pointing out where other guidelines need to be developed.
Kidney disease as a risk factor for development of cardiovascular disease: a statement from the American Heart Association Councils on Kidney in Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood Pressure Research, Clinical Cardiology, and Epidemiology and Prevention.
TLDR
There was a high prevalence of CVD in CKD and that mortality due to CVD was 10 to 30 times higher in dialysis patients than in the general population, and the task force recommended that patients with CKD be considered in the “highest risk group” for subsequent CVD events.
Opportunities for improving the care of patients with chronic renal insufficiency: current practice patterns.
There are between 2 and 13 million Americans with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recent reports suggest that their treatment is currently suboptimal. To further investigate this issue, patterns of
Chronic kidney disease: the distribution of health care dollars.
TLDR
These data showed that hospitalization was the major component of the sharp increase in cost around the initiation of dialysis, and increased comorbidity was associated with higher cost.

TLDR
Optimal pre-end-stage renal disease care involves early interventions aimed at delaying progression of chronic renal failure, judicious management of uremic complications, timely placement of vascular access, timely initiation of renal replacement therapy, and implementation of educational programs targeted at maximum rehabilitation.
Prevalence of and factors associated with suboptimal care before initiation of dialysis in the United States.
TLDR
The high prevalence of pre-ESRD hypoalbuminemia, hematocrit <28%, and lack of EPO use suggests that the quality of pre the initiation of dialysis care in the United States is suboptimal.

TLDR
Initiation of treatment for cardiovascular risk factors at earlier stages of chronic kidney disease should be effective in reducing cardiovascular disease events both before and after the onset of kidney failure.
Prevalence of chronic kidney disease and decreased kidney function in the adult US population: Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
TLDR
CKD is common and warrants improved detection and classification using standardized criteria to improve outcomes, and CCr estimates showed a steeper decline with age and were lower in non-Hispanic blacks.
A propensity analysis of late versus early nephrologist referral and mortality on dialysis.
TLDR
Late nephrologist referral is an independent risk factor for early death on dialysis, even after controlling for other indicators of healthcare utilization.
