Moving the clinical, research and educational aspects of AKI forward

Welcome to the

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.



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.

Changing Paradigms in Acute Kidney Injury:
From Mechanisms to Management - 2018

March 6, 2018
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.
