Acute Kidney Injury: a national strategy meeting – POSTPONED
Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is associated with up to 1 in 7 secondary care admissions and is a major risk factor for multiple adverse outcomes, including a high risk of death within 30-days and long-term chronic kidney disease in those who survive. Ensuring that services and systems are supported to provide high-quality care for AKI is therefore an absolute priority for patients and for healthcare providers. AKI can affect patients in all clinical areas, from primary care through to specialist secondary care, and many groups of healthcare professionals are involved in the care of patients with AKI.
Important work has been done in the recent past, including: the Think Kidneys AKI initiative, high profile QI projects, the development of local and regional models. The NCEPOD AKI report of 2010 is currently being revisited across the UK as the NEPHWORK project. Best use of data is a critical component of AKI, from the renal registry Master Patient Index through to AKI alerts and artificial intelligence (AI).
The aim of this meeting is to establish a national special interest group for AKI and to establish the initial priorities for that group
The meeting will start by identifying the current status of AKI, including a focus on current models of care, variations in care, recent QI programmes, and models of care.
In addition, there will be parallel workshops to include:
- Communication, education, and resource
- Core data, artificial intelligence
- Quality Improvement
- Service specifications and standards
- Clinical data and prioritisation
The outputs of the meeting will be captured and used to inform the work of health care professionals working in AKI in the UK.
The summit is hosted by a national collaboration of the Renal Association, British Renal Society, and the Renal Getting It Right First Time team of NHS Improvement.
Who should attend
Clinicians, commissioners, patient leaders, industry partners, and all involved in the care of patients with Acute Kidney Injury.
