You are invited to participate in a study to identify research priorities for people with kidney failure having surgery, approved by the University of Calgary Health Research Ethics Board (REB23-0749, Principal Investigator Dr Tyrone Harrison): Identification and Prioritization of Postoperative Outcomes in Research with Multidisciplinary Stakeholders and People Living with Kidney Failure.

People with kidney failure have over 16 times more surgeries than the general population. Unfortunately, guideline recommended strategies to risk stratify surgical patients are not informed by patient priorities and perform poorly for people with kidney failure, making it difficult for clinicians to engage with patients in shared surgical decision making.

In this study, we want to engage with patients, caregivers, researchers, and healthcare providers to identify and prioritize which postoperative outcomes are important to research in this patient group, and to identify targets for future risk prediction models.

Your involvement in the study will involve the completion of approximately three or four 10-minute surveys as part of a Delphi process.

If you are interested in participating, please click this link https://survey.ucalgary.ca/jfe/form/SV_9mZmv4Ffety6LxY and we will be in contact with further information and an electronic consent process. Please feel free to email Dr Tyrone Harrison at tgharris@ucalgary.ca with any questions.

Thank you for considering,
