Abstract

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality and morbidity as well as progression to established renal failure. Interventions in primary care, particularly the lowering of blood pressure in individuals with CKD and proteinuria and diabetes, can slow disease progression. This evidence base is codified in national guidance and in a simplified form in pay-for-performance targets. Prior to conducting the QICKD study - a cluster of quality-improvement interventions with reduction of blood pressure as its primary outcome measure - a diagnostic analysis was conducted to assess the relevance of the intended interventions.
