Limiting patient harm due to Acute Kidney Injury

The AHSN Network | Limiting patient harm due to Acute Kidney Injury
Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is when a person suffers from a sudden reduction in their kidney function. An awareness programme to recognise and treat the condition promptly was developed by a team at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Middlesbrough.  Since the programme began in 2015,  there has been a sustained reduction (36%) in AKI cases within the surgical wards at Middlesbrough. Now the programme and pathway has been shared with seven other trusts in the North East of England.  As a result of the AKI project and its links to CRAB Clinical Informatics Limited (C-Ci), other NHS Trusts, have now also been consulted, meaning this project has the potential for much wider spread (The AHSN Network )
