Read the World Kidney Day Scientific Editorial:
As part of its annual campaign to increase awareness and to emphasize World Kidney Day’s (WKD) message, its Steering Committee submits a scientific editorial to a wide range of medical journals. This year, the editorial was jointly written by Dr. Robyn G. Langham, Prof. Kamyar Kalantar-Zadeh, Prof. Ann Bonner et al. and focuses on health literacy. It argues that improving health literacy largely rests with health care providers who have a responsibility o communicate and educate effectively in codesign partnership with those with kidney disease. For kidney policy makers, a focus on health literacy can be the catalyst to shift organizations’ culture towards one that places the person at the center of health care. It will be published in some 20 journals – including Kidney International – and you can read it here.
