Cognition in CKD research development

Cognition (the ability to remember, learn new things, focus, and/or make everyday life decisions) has been identified as a top research priority for people with Chronic Kidney Disease.

The aim of this survey is to find out what specific research questions about cognition are important to people living with kidney disease, their family members, as well as researchers, clinicians, and decision-makers. This will help guide future research in Chronic Kidney Disease.

While completing this survey you will be asked to identify three top questions that you think are important for researchers to consider. These questions can be for any stage of Chronic Kidney Disease (non-dialysis Chronic Kidney Disease, dialysis, or transplant) or modality (peritoneal dialysis, in-centre/home hemodialysis). The more specific you are able to be with your questions the better. For example: What is the role of exercise in improving cognition in people who do peritoneal dialysis?

This survey is voluntary, and all responses will be kept secure; responses will be stripped of email addresses prior to analyses. Your participation will involve completing three survey rounds over the next few months in order to reach a consensus. You will be contacted via email before each round and each survey will take approximately 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Please complete all three rounds. All participants who complete the surveys will receive a report of the final results. Completing the survey implies that you have consented to participate.

If you have any questions about the research now or later, please contact the Principal Investigator, Dr. Clara Bohm at or the Research Coordinator, Oksana Harasemiw at
