A Pilot Trial of UrApp, a Novel Mobile Application for Childhood Nephrotic Syndrome Management


We are studying a new phone app, UrApp, for parents (or caregivers) to use when managing the care of children who have been diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome in the last six weeks. We will look at medication and urine monitoring with two groups; one will use the app, the other will have usual care. Study participation will last for one year.
