The Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) National Programme is looking for patients and carers to become further involved with this programme. The programme is a joint collaboration between NHS England and the UK Renal Registry and is expected to run for 2-3 years.
Acute kidney injury is associated with infection, dehydration and many other conditions, occurring over hours and days. It is associated with increased risk of death and with prolonged illness as toxins and fluid can accumulate.
We are looking for patients, or carers of patients who have had an episode of acute kidney injury and who would be willing to share their particular experiences to enable us to build a portfolio of case studies. There will also be other opportunities to become further involved in this work for those that are interested.
For further information please contact Karen Thomas, AKI Programme Manager, UK Renal Registry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07736066439.
