GoodRENal is a European project aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle habits in people with chronic kidney disease. Researchers from Sweden, Greece, Belgium and Spain are working on this project, which is funded by the Erasmus+ European programme and the Spanish R+D+i Plan.

Specialists from the CEU UCH, Manises Hospital, Valencia University and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV); the Karolinska Institute and the Skåne University Hospital, in Sweden; the Catholic University of Leuven, in Belgium; and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Greece, will strive to improve the quality of life of people with chronic kidney disease through an all-round approach, which includes physical activity, nutrition and psychological well-being.


GoodRENal involves designing a virtual platform that is used during the haemodialysis sessions to encourage patients to stick to these healthy habits, while they are being treated.

The design and the development of the GoodRENal virtual platform will incorporate the results obtained in previous clinical trials.

The GoodRENal project also includes the design of an e-learning platform with guides on physical activity habits, nutrition and psychological aspects, which are intended for all those who influence the lifestyle of the patients undergoing haemodialysis treatment, from the actual people with chronic kidney disease, to the healthcare professionals who look after them, their families and their caregivers.

It also envisages organizing different scientific events and training activities up to 2023.
