Acute kidney injury (AKI)
Acute kidney injury is a common and potentially life-threatening condition that frequently occurs in acutely unwell patients in both hospital and community settings. Around one in five emergency admissions have AKI. This programme aims to improve the care of people at risk of, or who already have, AKI through a collaborative approach leading to better prevention, recognition and management. The hydration project in care homes has recently been awarded Quality Initiative of the Year at the HSJ Patient Safety Congress.
