The Kidney Health Education and Research Group focuses on enhancing kidney health, advancing collaborative care, and empowering communities through our research. Our ongoing research identifies psychosocial, behavioral and cultural factors that impact patients’ clinical outcomes and quality of life. We focus on asssessing barriers, particularly the ethnocultural, with the aim of producing culturally competent ways to enhance everybody’s access to kidney transplantation. Our research also leads to quality improvement projects targetting routine clinical practice.
