Transitions in Care Initiative

Surrey/North Delta

RELAY project: Nephrology

The Relay project is a multi-phase project to optimize care for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), in order to delay the need for dialysis, as well as improve care and quality of life for those already on dialysis. In addition to improved quality of life, the outcome of this project will be cost and resource savings. Particular emphasis will be placed on improving the journey of unattached CKD patients who use Surrey Memorial Hospital's ER as their entry point into the health system.
