Acute Kidney injury (AKI) occurs in one in five acute hospital admissions and is estimated to cost the NHS £1billion per year. AKI is recognised as a serious patient safety challenge as patients typically have multiple comorbidities and risk factors. Up to 30% of AKI cases could be prevented with correct care and rapid treatment. Effective education and clinically supportive resources for those involved in the provision of health care is imperative if the risk and burden of AKI is to be successfully reduced.
