COVID-19: Kidney Resources
The Government of BC has launched its Restart Plan and the province is now toward the end of Phase 2 of re-opening some non-essential businesses and services while continuing to address COVID-19. BC Renal and the health authority renal programs continue to be committed to supporting British Columbians living with kidney disease as the situation evolves. To help share information, we have COVID-19 webpages for patients and for health professionals.
There, you can view and download resources we’ve created related to clinical care of hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, home hemodialysis and kidney care (non-dialysis) patients. Many of the patient resources are available in English, Chinese & Punjabi.
Also, check out our People Profiles feature below to hear from the leaders around the province who came together mid-March to form BC Renal’s Emergency Operations Committee and learn about their role in ensuring the continuation of kidney care during the pandemic.
