Moving the clinical, research and educational aspects of AKI forward

Welcome to the

ACUTE KIDNEY INJURY NETWORK
AKIN (Acute Kidney Injury Network) represents an
international interdisciplinary group of adult and
pediatric nephrologists and critical care physicians,
and others interested in Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).

The intended products are joint agenda from the groups that
will move the clinical, research and educational aspects of this field
forward. We anticipate that in this collaborative effort interested
groups and experts worldwide will facilitate the advancement of
knowledge that will ultimately result in evidence based practice
recommendations that can be used to improve the care of
patients with AKI.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

Important Survey
Your Opinion Helps! At CRRT 2014, there was much discussion regarding the recovery aspect of AKI. An area of interest is how to enhance recovery in patients who remain dialysis-dependent at discharge. It is hypothesized that patients with potential for renal recovery may require a different care plan than the "usual" ESRD patient.  

Please help with your opinion regarding the post-discharge care of such patients, using this short survey. For a balanced view it is very important to have the input of specialists from different healthcare settings and countries.

MEDLINE (PubMed) Nephrology Filter
The Health Information Research Unit at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, in collaboration with the Kidney Clinical Research Unit at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, developed and tested MEDLINE(PubMed) filters that allow clinicians to search for articles within a specific discipline (Nephrology), rather than searching the entire MEDLINE (PubMed) database.

The UAB-UCSD O’Brien Core Center for Acute Kidney Injury Research
Presents
Changing Paradigms in Acute Kidney Injury: From Mechanisms to Management - 2015

Tuesday, February 17, 2015
San Diego, California
Acute Kidney Injury is a rapidly evolving area where several advances have been made in understanding the mechanisms and pathways of AKI and its effects on other organs. Recent identification of biomarkers has provided new tools and techniques to characterize this disorder. This pre-course workshop will provide a comprehensive review of the most recent developments in the field and describe emerging knowledge from basic and translational research. Results from clinical trials will be discussed to define the best strategies for effective management of patients and define the criteria for future studies.
