RPSG Research and Collaborations

The RPSG team has ‘opened its doors’ to various teams and collaborators to meet mutual research goals. These collaborations have helped develop further understanding of where to bridge gaps in kidney care.

Collaborations have included prompting awareness and use of Patient View (PV) to access records; NHS Kidney Care survey support for the Renal Information Exchange Group (RIXG); National Kidney Federation (NKF) UK; Kidney Health UK; supporting Close-Up Research to involve patients in kidney video-based project; supporting a Kidney Project in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Brighton; supporting a Kidney Project at the University of Southampton; survey support for Efficacy and Safety of Prescribing in Transplantation (ESPRIT); supporting a Records Access initiative for the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP); survey support for the Picker Institute, UK. Supporting Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease through Social Media and presented the outcome of the Lord Mayor of Bristol’s blood and organ donation campaign at the ESPN/EWOPA Joint Congress, Porto, Portugal. The RPSG team continue working to develop projects through collaborative efforts and team working.
