Think Kidneys Programme Update: AKI

December was a fairly quiet month for the programme. The app has been updated with additional content and is now available for Apple or Android.

The main piece of work has been around the eLearning platform – Moodle. This has been branded to reflect the RA and the Think Kidneys style, and delegates have been invited to attend a two day training course to learn how to make eModules. The training is taking place in February, so look out in March for news of when the first Modules will be available.

Think Kidneys have been supporting a quality improvement project for AKI in primary care with the RCGP. A toolkit of resources is being developed, and a study day “Collaboration across primary and secondary care: Lessons from acute kidney injury” is taking place on 27 February at The Studio, Birmingham. This interactive workshop will be an opportunity to hear from the participating practices, share current work, and will help to guide future work including the development of a toolkit. 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.

If you feel the workshop would be relevant to you, you are invited to register your attendance here. Places are limited, so please register soon to avoid disappointment.

We are continuing to promote the work of the programme on our Twitter feed – and now have well over 2,400 followers. This has been a great way of sharing our work, and we are hoping that the momentum will continue and our followers will continue to increase.
