The BC Provincial Renal Agency (BCPRA) mandate is to plan and coordinate the care of patients with kidney disease throughout the province.
The BCPRA is unique in Canada, and in North America, as a model for integrated health care planning, policy and implementation within a regionalized structure for patients with kidney disease. Consensus guidelines for patient care, identification of key elements regarding patient outcomes, and the establishment of provincial contracts have all contributed to the delivery of seamless care for patients in British Columbia.
In BC an estimated one in 10 people has some level of kidney disease, but most don’t even know it. Over 90 percent of people with early-stage kidney disease have no symptoms. Without diagnosis and treatment, this means their kidney health can gradually deteriorate over time until their kidneys no longer function properly.
