Kidney Check Manitoba

Manitoba is currently engaging 11 communities to determine next steps for in-community diabetes, blood pressure and kidney health checks and care. More information on these communities will be available soon.

The team has been busy developing engagement tools, standard operating procedures and developing the Kidney Check app which will be the core tool, alongside vetted equipment, in point-of-care testing and results. Kidney Check Manitoba has liaised with all the Kidney Check teams in other provinces to help train staff, provide equipment and support provincial Kidney Check teams. Training included specific information on equipment and procedures for point of care testing equipment including transporting samples, quality assurance and standard operating procedures.
