Introduction

This is an open-ended survey conducted as part of Kidney Health Australia’s Youth Program national consultation process.

This is an opportunity to have your say, voice your opinions and hopefully give us your lived experience and information which will assist us to support and improve services to you.

We are keen to hear directly from young people aged 15 – 24 living with kidney disease or if you are now older but experienced living with kidney disease during this age range! We also want to hear from the parents or carers of young people.

This survey will help us identify what is most important to you in your kidney health journey and what can be improved to best help young people living with kidney disease.

We are interested in the many issues experienced around living with kidney disease including navigating adolescence, moving towards self-management, transition and transfer from children's to adult healthcare or just being a young person in the adult healthcare system.

Your privacy is our priority.
