IN-HOME AKI Monitoring in Cancer Patients: From Concept to Clinical Evaluation

PCSIG Webinar_Sep2023.png

The IN-HOME study assesses the feasibility and acceptability of using a whole-blood creatinine point-of-care testing device (NOVA Biomedical StatSensor® Xpress) in the home, to monitor patient kidney function whilst receiving anticancer treatments that are potentially toxic to the kidneys.

Improved monitoring of kidney function could potentially lead to earlier detection of adverse renal events and improve patient outcomes. This could also alleviate the risk of patients with reduced kidney function going on to clinical trials.

This webinar covers the end-to-end process that the team has gone through from initial idea, device selection and working with patients and healthcare professional to design an appropriate study to evaluate the feasibility of using the technology in the patient’s home. Key learnings to date from the practical delivery of a research study into the UK NHS are also shared.

Join Leanna Goodwin, Research Practitioner, The Christie Hospital and digital ECMT (Cancer Research UK Cancer Biomarker Centre) in this Free Webinar to discuss IN-HOME AKI monitoring in cancer patients. Moderated by Jenny Royle, Strategic Lead, MediPaCe (London, UK).
