Survey - KDPI/EPTS
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.
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.
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.
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 email@example.com. The survey can be accessed clicking the link here.
