      Rees, Michael; Brettle, Alison (Kidney Research UK, 2018-06-01)
      This report seeks to examine the relationship between social deprivation and the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the United Kingdom (UK). The aims of the report are to: 1. Understand why people who are socially deprived are more likely to develop CKD than those who are not socially deprived 2. Provide a map of the literature in relation to different types of social deprivation and risk factors 3. Identify gaps in the literature in relation to different types of social deprivation, risk factors and stages of kidney disease 4. Learn lessons from other developed countries in achieving better outcomes for socially deprived groups. It will do this by: 1. Reporting on a systematic scoping review of the literature to identify the evidence base of the relationship between social deprivation and CKD 2. Mapping the evidence according to country/area 3. Drawing up a set of key findings from the results of the review and mapping 4. Identifying opportunities for further research
