Kidney kiosk

 

Overview

The Kidney kiosk is a touch screen program that allows patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and their families to have access to up-to-date, nutrition-focused and educational videos, to promote self-management of their chronic illness. The self-management of dietary behaviours is essential to maintaining stable kidney function and/ or managing symptoms of CKD and kidney failure. The kiosk is portable with a touch screen which enables kidney patients to use it while receiving dialysis treatment. It can also be placed in waiting rooms for training purposes.

Kidney Health Australia is piloting the Kidney kiosk in the Far North Queensland region at Cairns Base Hospital and the Townsville Hospital Renal Units. A comprehensive evaluation of the Kidney kiosk pilot will also be undertaken as part of the project.
