LONG TERM SEQUELAE OF ACUTE KIDNEY INJURY: IDENTIFYING THE OPTIMAL MODEL OF CARE AND INTERVENTION TO ENHANCE PATIENT OUTCOME
Grant number: 1150173 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with significant morbidity, mortality and health care costs. It is increasingly recognised as a key driver of progressive kidney disease, and no intervention has been shown to improve the long-term outcome of AKI survivors. This project identifies risk factors for chronic kidney disease, dialysis dependence and death after an episode of AKI, and examines the feasibility, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of early nephrology review in high risk individuals.
