Acute Kidney Injury

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common, harmful and costly. It is a marker of illness severity that is associated with poor outcomes including high rates of unplanned rehospitalisation as well as development or progression of chronic kidney disease. Placing an AKI diagnosis in clinical context is important to improve outcomes.

We have produced guidance to support tailored and timely care following a hospital admission complicated by AKI.

The guidance table (Table 1) and the 'Top Ten Tips' (Table 2) are designed to support safer transitions of care and are of relevance to both hospital and general practice teams. These new resources have been integrated within the RCGP AKI Toolkit – “Post-AKI Care” section along with many useful resources for practitioners, patients and carers.
