Kidney Health

Strategic Clinical Network

The Kidney Health SCN partners with Albertans to achieve excellence in sustainable quality kidney care and outcomes through innovation and evidence based practice. We strive to optimize prevention, early identification and appropriate management across all ages and stages of kidney health.

What's New

If you are a health care provider with an interest in the prevention and management of kidney disease, you are invited to join your colleagues in Calgary on March 10 & 11, 2017 for Alberta Kidney Days. This program is being hosted through a partnership among Alberta Health Services Kidney Health Strategic Clinical Network, the Kidney Foundation of Canada (Alberta Branches), and the Southern and Northern Alberta Renal Programs.
