The Australasian Kidney Trials Network is inviting people with experience of chronic kidney disease to participate in a consumer focus group to gather opinions on information provided to potential research participants.

The focus group will be conducted online for 1.5 hours via Zoom on 6 December with about 12 participants with lived experience of kidney disease.

If you wish to express interest in taking part, please let Hayley Candler know at


The Australasian Kidney Trials Network (AKTN) operates under the Centre for Health Services Research at the University of Queensland’s Faculty of Medicine.

The Network is a not-for-profit collaborative research group that designs, conducts and supports investigator-initiated clinical trials with the aim of improving life for people living with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

To date, the AKTN has successfully completed eleven trials with more in development. Our research helps bring evidence to medical practice and in doing so improve outcomes for CKD patients.
