Danila Dilba kidney health program

 

Overview

The Danila Dilba kidney health program was launched in May 2008. The program's aim is to implement a case management service to clients in the Greater Darwin Area, who have identified stage 4 or 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD). The kidney health program provides education and family based consultation to help clients understand the choices that they have when their kidneys get sick.

The program also works closely with an outreach team that visits renal patients living in town based communities in Palmerston and Darwin. The program practices continuous quality improvement by using the ABCD audit tools from Menzies School of Health and Research, and works with other areas of Danila Dilba Health Service in promoting the screening for CKD through adult health checks.
