Abstract

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a medical emergency that commonly occurs in primary and secondary care. The National Confidential Enquiry into Perioperative Deaths report found that AKI was avoidable in 30% of patients who died from AKI in hospitals. The cost of caring for patients with AKI has been estimated to be £1.02 billion in England. NHS England has prioritised AKI as an area for quality improvement and has positioned AKI in the Patient Safety workstream, establishing the Think Kidneys AKI Programme.
