As acute kidney injury warning stage test results for adults begin to be received electronically in primary care, Think Kidneys has developed a range of resources specifically for primary care.

The links below will provide members of the multidisciplinary team caring for people with, or at risk of AKI with information and guidance on how to respond. The aim is to improve safety and outcomes for patients.

As part of our work to develop an AKI Toolkit with the RCGP, these resources were reviewed in 2018, and will next be reviewed in June 2021. You can access the toolkit here.
