Beyond CKD: Unveiling the hidden truth of anaemia

About the survey

Between January to February 2020, market research company Research Partnership carried out a survey on behalf of Astellas Europe Limited to explore patient and nephrologist perceptions of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and anaemia of CKD.

The survey looked to uncover the experiences that both patients and nephrologists have during the diagnosis and management of the condition.


Meet the Expert Panel

An external Expert Panel were convened by Astellas to provide perspectives on the survey results. The Expert Panel included nephrologists, nurses and a patient advocacy group (PAG) representative from across Europe. The Expert Panel assisted Astellas in interpreting the results and providing their real-world perspectives on how the results related to everyday practice and management of anaemia of CKD. All members of the Expert Panel received honorariums from Astellas for their services.
