NEW Editor's Choice Article from Journal of Renal Care
Introduction from the Editor: The Guest Editorial written by Drs Kathryn Watson, Donah Zachariah and Paul R Kalra from the UK, highlights the importance of the Cardio-Renal Forum (www.cardiorenalforum.com), a UK independent group formed of health care professionals involved in the care of patients who have cardio-vascular and/or kidney disease. The Cardio-Renal Forum shows how collaboration and learning between medical staff working in renal and cardiac specialities can benefit patients. However it is crucial that all members of the multi-professional team work and share experiences across the traditional specialities. All too often we hear of patients who receive one message from a dietician specialising in diabetes and a contradictory message from a renal dietician; or maybe health education provided by a heart failure specialist nurse may be at odds with advice provided by a dialysis nurse. We must all reflect on how we can work together to provide integrated care for our patients - this Guest Editorial provides an exemplar on collaborative working and gives us food for thought.
