The incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) is rising and is a common syndrome in hospitalised patients, the effects of which extend beyond the acute phase. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) increases the risk of AKI, and an episode of AKI in turn, increases the likelihood of subsequent development of CKD, highlighting the need for ongoing surveillance.
A multidisciplinary approach to management is critical to decrease the incidence and severity of future AKI events and CKD development or progression. This includes patient education on lifestyle, managing medications, regular health assessment and nephrology referral as part of a GPMP.
General practice is not only in the unique position to provide post-AKI phase care, but also to identify those at risk of AKI, as well as address potentially modifiable exposures to prevent it.
This event is hosted by Murray PHN in partnership with Kidney Health Australia.
