Definition:

The Manitoba Pediatric Chronic Kidney Disease Registry contains clinical data maintained by the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) that provide information about children with impaired kidney function (measured using the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) as under 75 ml/min/1.73 m2). This information has been collected by the Pediatric Nephrology clinical program at the Children's Hospital (Health Sciences Centre, Winnipeg) since 1995. The data contain clinical and laboratory data, as well as dialysis, transplant, and quality of care indicators.

NOTE: This data is considered project data, acquired for the research project by Chartier et al. (2015), and is currently not part of the accessible data held in the MCHP Data Repository.
