Acute Kidney Injury Event 2016

NIHR CLAHRC Greater Manchester and the Greater Manchester and East Cheshire Strategic Clinical Network jointly organised 2016's Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) conference at the Imperial War Museum North at Salford Quays.


The programme aimed to build on lessons from the previous years event and to focus on the full spectrum of AKI care, from the community to the hospital and back, from prevention to management and post-AKI care. As such, there was a strong emphasis on AKI care in primary care and the primary/secondary care interface.


The conference was opened by Professor Donal O’Donoghue (Consultant Nephrologist and Renal Association President Elect) reflecting on the link between AKI and 20th century wars.


A string of impressive talks and workshops followed based on the learning, experience and work from healthcare professionals across the country looking into the patient journey:


  • Tackling AKI in the Community
  • Tackling AKI at the primary / secondary interface
  • Priority setting in:
  1. Prevention
  2. Management
  3. Post AKI Care


The last session of the day was a priority setting activity, click here for a summary of the findings.
