Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) is seen in up to 18% of allpatients admitted to hospital with older adults being particularlyaffected. The costs to the NHS areestimated at between Â£434 million and Â£620 million per year. This study day hasbeen designed to give healthcare professionals a better understanding of thisimportant clinical issue.
Beginning with anoverview from NHS England on the size of problem and why it is an issue, theprogramme will then focus on the local picture in the West Midlands, andinclude a session on what drugs are involved in AKI.
The interactive afternoon sessions will involve use of case studies todevelop strategies to identify patients at risk, and care plans for AKIpatients following discharge from hospital. As always, there will be lots of opportunity for delegates to sharetheir own experiences and examples of best practice.
