The BCPRA Acuity Scale measures six parameters (hemodynamics, access, treatment, activities of daily living [ADLs], nursing interventions, and psychosocial evaluation) to assign a score reflective of a patient's stability on dialysis and level of independence ranging from 1 to 6, with 1 being very stable on independent dialysis and 6 being the highest acuity for patients admitted to the ICU.
The BCPRA plans and coordinates the care of people with kidney disease throughout British Columbia to ensure equitable access to high quality care.
BCPRA (2010) has targeted an additional 10% increase in independent dialysis therapies by 2015.
