Experimental: Multifactorial intervention
The multifactorial intervention will consist of a CKD lecture, the CKD reference card, academic detailing, and access to the CKD registry.
Behavioral: Multifactorial intervention
Providers in the intervention group will receive a lecture on CKD, a CKD reference card, academic detailing (residents only), and access to the CKD registry.
Active Comparator: Education only
Providers in the education only arm will receive a CKD lecture and be given a CKD reference card.
Behavioral: Education only
The education will consist of a lecture and distribution of a CKD reference card.
- PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) Adherence [ Time Frame: One year ]Probability for having a PTH measured during the study period comparing intervention vs control clinic during the study period as estimated by Generalized Estimating Equation (determines probability, not proportion). Participants assigned 1 if PTH was measured and 0 if PTH was not measured during the study period.
- Last Clinic BP <130/80 mmHg [ Time Frame: One year ]Probability of last Clinic BP <130/80 mmHg Comparing Intervention vs Control Clinic During the Study Period as estimated using Generalized Estimating Equation.
