The CCG has several key priorities relating to AKI:
- Identifying patients at high risk of AKI and making sure their notes are ‘tagged’ and that all other information sharing systems contain details
- Having systems for coding patients with episodes of AKI marked on their discharge summary and making sure that necessary ongoing care is organised
- Working with the CCG and GHNHSFT Nephrology Department to have systems to inform patients about ‘sick day rules’ and how to avoid AKI
- Getting prepared for the later roll out of path lab results alerts in practice ICE reports – we will need to be able to implement our own ‘care bundle’ for these patients
Please do check back regularly, as more information will be shared in the coming weeks and months.
