Title of the project:

Protocol of novel KHDC Program under the background of new Chinese community medical model


Chronic Kidney Disease, Interventional nephrology


Short description of the project or abstract: 

KHDC prevention and treatment face serious challenges in developing countries: the weak social KHDC awareness; lack of the working mechanism featuring government taking the lead with multi-sector cooperation and whole society participation; lack of sound KHDC prevention and treatment networks; inappropriate allocation of health resources and the urgent need for qualified health personnel.
However, more attention has come from Chinese government and current policy activities for the prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases during the last years. New Chinese community medical model is inducing more expectation to NCD control in China. Now is the beginning of new model for KHDC prevention and intervention in China. We stand at a new crossroads, our path forward is clear, while no one knows the final results of next 5 or 10 years. But for sure, the strong support from community health center will help the KHDC prevention and intervention more successful.


Learning or Research objectives:  


  • To identify the individuals with chronic kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease in community residents of Guangzhou City in Southern China.
  • To determine the prevalence and current risk factors of chronic kidney disease, end stage renal disease, hypertension and diabetes in Guangzhou community residents.
  • To define the overall risk factor score for cardiovascular disease in Guangzhou community residents.

Patient Management:

  • To reduce the total mortality rate of screened patients with chronic kidney disease, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease by undertaking a comprehensive management strategy including health education, lifestyle modification and effective pharmacological treatment mainly based on the management of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.
  • To assess changes in albumin/protein excretion and renal function as well as blood pressure.
  • To assess the changes of end stage renal disease incidences (including dialysis and transplantation) and cardiovascular events.
