A full day workshop supported by Think Kidneys, NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester, KSS AHSN, AHSN NENC and RCGP

The RCGP AKI Quality Improvement Project represents the next step in the development of resources, including an online toolkit, to improve the recognition, response and management of AKI in primary care.

AKI offers a lens to improve patient safety for people with a range of conditions, particularly those taking multiple medicines and living with complex health and social care needs (i.e. multimorbidity). By focusing on AKI there are opportunities to improve: medication safety; safer transitions of care; and safety for vulnerable patients and their carers.

We are currently working with practices to undertake case note reviews for patients who have generated an AKI alert and/or are known to have had an illness complicated by AKI with the aim to capture learning to understand and address key system issues that might affect patient safety. The case studies from these reviews will be made available on a toolkit freely available on the RCGP website. These will sit alongside national guidance to develop a model of learning and improvement and support reflective practice.

This interactive workshop will be an opportunity to hear from the participating practices, share current work, preview the toolkit as well as contribute to the final version. Building on the learning from the participating practices and your own experiences, the workshop aims to utilise Quality Improvement techniques to identify the key issues and any gaps, discuss and collectively develop possible solutions and approaches to test and embed into your routine practice to manage AKI effectively across the system.
