Findings for our Bury AKI Project - Report now available!
We are delighted to share our findings from our recently completed work focussing on the primary care management of patients who have had an episode of hospital care complicated by Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), conducted over the last 3 years in collaboration with NIHR Bury CCG. The project comprised; delivery of an intervention (including education, supporting action plan production, and audit/feedback) and a process and also outcome evaluation.
Audit data showed improvement in all four criteria measured (Read coding, medication review, kidney function tests and written information given to patients). Read coding of AKI in primary care is positively associated with improvements in downstream management.
A summary of the project can be found below and full report here. More information about the project is available here.
