Standardized assessments by clinicians in clinical trials are of high value. KRN collaborates with stakeholders to advance clinician reported outcome (ClinRO) measures to support trial conduct and clinical care.
Patients report edema as a high impact manifestation of proteinuric kidney disease. Unfortunately the typical clinical examination of edema is not standardized and is marked by a general lack of precision. Accurate and valid assessment of edema is important for patient care and clinical trials.
The ClinRO-Edema measure has been developed and is now available to support standardized edema assessment. There is a brief training and certification step To request access to the training, please complete the request form below.
