AKI and its management e-Learning Program: 

 Activity overview/background

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is associated with high short and long-term morbidity and mortality. The rising global incidence and the devastating yet potentially preventable outcomes have prompted the International Society of Nephrology's 0by25 initiative to increase AKI awareness. This lecture intends to provide an update on the epidemiology of Community-Acquired Acute Kidney Injury (CA-AKI). We review the main differences between CA and Hospital Acquired AKI, and findings from the most recent studies. We address the most common definitions of CA-AKI, and how these different definitions affect epidemiology and outcomes associated with CA-AKI.

We discuss the long-term consequences of community-acquired AKI, a disease with enormous health and financial burden, and the importance of close follow-up of patients, for potential initiation of early renal protective strategies.
