Peer review is a key step in evaluating research projects to ensure they are feasible, ethical, applicable and well-positioned to succeed. Increasingly, those with lived experience are being invited to review research proposals, provide recommendations, and influence what health research is prioritized.

The Kidney Foundation of Canada, in collaboration with Canadians Seeking Solutions and Innovations to Overcome Chronic Kidney Disease (Can-SOLVE CKD)Canadian Nephrology Trials Network (CNTN)Canadian Donation and Transplantation Research Program (CDTRP), and the Kidney Research Scientist Core Education and National Training Program (KRESCENT) have developed the People with Lived Experience Peer Review Training module.

This training module is available online for free in both English and French, and participants are provided a training certificate upon completion. This training is aimed at those who have never participated in the peer review process and was developed with a working group of lived experience reviewers.
