I want my patients to participate in the target-kd initiative. How do I do this?

So long as you are a practicing nephrologist associated with the University of Calgary, you may recruit patients who will be going to a kidney biopsy  from the University of Calgary Medical Clinics, Sheldon Chumir Clinics, Sunridge Clinics, and the Alberta Children's Hospital. 

Please have your patients complete the below consent form and place it back into their chart. Collection kits are available on the units listed above (not required for pediatric patients) and may be given to the patient at the time of consent.
