Multi-Care Kidney Clinic - Referrals

Main Page Content

​​​The Multi-Care Kidney Clinic (formerly called the Renal Management Clinic) is an interdisciplinary clinic dedicated to promoting the health of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and aims to:

  • Slow the progression of CKD
  • Prevent known related comorbidities
  • Assist patients and their families to adapt to and manage chronic illness by providing them with education and psychosocial support
  • Plan for and facilitate the smooth transition to dialysis, kidney transplantation, and/or comprehensive conservative renal care.

Referral to the clinic must be made by an outpatient nephrologist and must meet these criteria:

  • CKD confirmed by a nephrologist (reversible causes ruled out)
  • Kidney Failure Risk Equation (KFRE) calculation of >10% over 2 years or an estimated glomerular filtration rate of <15 ml/min
  • Patient informed of the purpose of our clinic
  • Accompanying updated and detailed medical history (must be typed)

We will provide CKD management to patients who are receiving immunosuppressive therapy for glomerulonephritis or transplant. Patients will continue to receive follow-up care from their referring MD for management of immunosuppressive therapy.

We will accept new patients only when the above information above has been provided.

If your patient needs immediate, urgent care, please call us at 416 340 4800 ext. 6389.
