Introduction

The Clinical Practice Guidelines Committee was established by the UK Renal Association (RA) to prepare guidelines for the management of patients with renal disease and help identify the data to be collected by the Renal Registry.

The RA has produced guidance on best practice in the management of patients with kidney disease since 1995. The RA Clinical Practice Guidelines are not funded by any external organisation, commercial company or charity.

In 2013 it was agreed that for appropriate topics The Renal Association would produce joint adult and paediatric guidelines with the British Association for Paediatric Nephrology.

NICE Accreditation

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has accredited the process used by The Renal Association to produce its Clinical Practice Guidelines. The accreditation is valid until January 2022.

This ensures that the Guidelines themselves will automatically be NICE accredited, providing they follow the processes laid out in the Clinical Practice Guideline Development Manual.

Accreditation helps health and social care professionals identify the most robustly produced guidance available, enabling them to deliver high quality care.
