Two new leaflets are available to download on our website
We have teamed up with Think Kidneys and the British Association for Paediatric Nephrology (BAPN) to introduce two new resources on our websites – patient information for young people and the carers of young people on the risks of acute kidney injury (AKI) and how to keep kidneys safe.
Developed by a working group of paediatric renal specialists the leaflets explain;
- The risks of AKI
- when to seek advice,
- and from whom to seek advice
The leaflets have had approval from our patient advisory group and the BAPN. Describing when young people might be at greater risk of AKI due to acute illness, how the kidneys work and the potential impact of some drugs they may be taking, the informative leaflets suggest when it’s necessary to get advice from their health care team.
