To recognize National Kidney Month, the IPRO QIN-QIO launched an educational videos series to increase patient health literacy and help patients make informed choices about preventing and managing chronic kidney disease (CKD).
These videos cover the important topics related to CKD, including prevention, screening and diagnosis, and management. The series was designed with input from diverse members of the IPRO QIN-QIO Patient and Family Advisory Council. You are encouraged to share these videos with your patients, residents, and their families. We’ll be adding more videos soon so bookmark this page and check back frequently.
