Survey - KDPI/EPTS


The Australian Kidney Donor Profile Index (KDPI) and the Australian Estimated Post-Transplant Survival (EPTS) score were introduced in 2016 and 2018 respectively, to assist clinicians in the decision-making process when considering the allocation and acceptance of deceased donor kidneys for potential transplant candidates.

The KDPI and EPTS are not currently used in the algorithm for organ allocation in Australia. This survey is evaluating clinician understanding and use of the KDPI and the EPTS score in their decision making with respect to organ acceptance.

We would like to invite consultant nephrologists working in Australian centres to take part in this survey, which will require approximately 5 – 10 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary.
 
Responses will be anonymous and will not be used individually. Please be advised that you may withdraw at any time before completion of the survey by closing your browser window. Because responses are anonymous, it will not be possible to remove your responses from the database if you complete the survey.

The approval to conduct this research has been provided by the University of Western Australia, in accordance with its ethics review and approval procedures. The survey has also been reviewed and approved by the ANZSN Honorary Executive

Should you have any questions, please feel free to email Wai Lim at wai.lim@health.wa.gov.au. The survey can be accessed clicking the link here.
