European Renal Best Practice (ERBP) is the guidance producing body of ERA-EDTA.
ERBP uses rigourous methodology for guideline development and strives to be far more than an institution where experts tell other people what they should do. ERBP aims to be a melting pot where visions on and experience with healthcare from different regions and generations comes together to distil solutions that improve outcomes of patients with kidney disease.
The prime mission of ERBP
is to improve the outcome of patients with kidney disease in a sustainable way through enhancing the availability of the knowledge on the management of these patients in a format that stimulates its use in clinical practice in Europe.
To accomplish these goals of the mission, ERBP works in different fields. In practice, ERBP:
- Produces clinical practice guidelines and guidance statements
- Collaborates with ERA-EDTA Working Groups on specific topics
- Maps gaps in knowledge
- Disseminates documents in a transparent (publicly and freely available) and understandable way (e.g. translations)
