Evidence-based Management Approach

This course on AKI and its management is based on guideline recommendations from:

  • (KDIGO)’s Clinical Practice Guideline for Acute Kidney Injury (2012)12
  • Kidney International Supplements’Dialysis Interventions for Treatment of AKI (2012)13

A hypothetical patient, Mr. AD, is used to illustrate applying these guidelines to the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of AKI. Where available, it is advised to follow the local Ministry of Health guidelines which are usually adapted from international guidelines.

This online Continuing Professional Development (CPD)-certified course is intended for general healthcare practitioners serving patients in healthcare centres, clinics, and district hospitals.
