Abstract

Optimization of care in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) could be the key to improved clinical and economic outcomes, both during the phase of CKD as well as in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). CKD is a major public health problem that has been insufficiently studied. There is little published information on outcomes among CKD patients, specifically, data on mortality, morbidity, and quality of life. Indeed, recent efforts by the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) have served to define the classification, evaluation, and approach to management of CKD in practice. The Study of Treatment for Renal Insufficiency: Data and Evaluation (STRIDE) registry is an initiative to study CKD patients in nephrology practices across the country. It is a prospective observational study whose objective is to profile demographic and clinical variables, practice patterns, comorbid conditions, quality of life, and outcomes in a nationally based sample of CKD patients. This article details the design, methodology, and process of enrollment into the registry.
