UK Renal Health Data Research Network

Vacancy for network members

Unpaid, voluntary role

Who are we?

The UK Renal Health Data Research Network (UKRHDRN) aims for better use of renal health datasets, to improve renal care and enable future research discoveries.

The network is a source of expertise and experience in health data research and strives to develop collaboration between groups and individuals doing research on kidney diseases using large datasets. Its goal is to reduce the burden of kidney disease and reduce inequalities in kidney disease and its treatment.

Is this you?

We are seeking new members to join the UK Renal Health Data Research Network and take an active part in one of the four developing workstreams:

  1. Data infrastructure – understanding and influencing
  2. Doing data science better – towards a kidney data research strategy
  3. Effective use of consented cohorts
  4. Network support to investigator-led data studies

We welcome people who have an interest in renal health data research and expertise in one or more of:

  • data governance
  • routine data analysis (primary care, hospital records, national data linkages, lab data records)
  • existing renal registries
  • statistics
  • health economics
  • patient reported outcomes
  • epidemiology or pharmaco-epidemiology
  • lived experience as a kidney patient

What is expected?

We are currently scoping the full of details of what is required within each of the workstreams and will work with workstream members to agree deliverables and timescales.

Meetings may be virtual using Microsoft Teams or as a face-to-face meeting which would be held a convenient location and venue for attendees.

The role is voluntary and all reasonable out of pocket expenses will be promptly reimbursed.
