Outcomes and care priorities for older people living with frailty and advanced chronic kidney disease
Reported outcomes for older people with chronic kidney disease often focus on survival and mortality rather than symptom burden and health-related quality of life. This project involves conducting a scoping review of the research which has been undertaken to understand the priorities for older people living with frailty and chronic kidney disease. A scoping review following PRISMA guidance will be conducted, followed by focus groups to incorporate stakeholder views. The results will be used to inform a research agenda for work going forward in this area.
