Participate in a Survey for Art Activities Provided to Patients Living with Kidney Disease


The PAINT Project aims to undertake an international mapping exercise to identify the current provision of for kidney patients. It is co-produced with a consortium of members from the Renal Arts Group* and project partners from Chong Hua Hospital in the Philippines, the Center for Arts and Health at the University of Florida, the Waterford Healing Arts Trust in Ireland, and the World Health Organization.

The project intends to:

  • Increase the international partnerships supporting the Renal Arts Group with the potential for future collaboration
  • Identify policy recommendations for future art developments in health programs for kidney patients

The PAINT project plans to develop a policy brief outlining recommendations for dissemination aimed at leading art and health organizations. They also plan a series of collaborative art workshops with representatives from partner organizations.

The project team would greatly appreciate your participation in the survey regardless of whether or not your kidney unit, health center, or organization provides art activities to patients.

*The Renal Arts Group is a collaborative research group established in 2016 at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Queen’s University Belfast, in Belfast, Ireland, between patients with kidney failure, carers, clinicians, academics, and artists to develop a program of research aimed at improving the physical and psychological quality of life of those living with kidney disease through the medium of art.
