Information and support
If you have acute kidney injury, your healthcare professional should talk to you about possible treatments, how your condition will be monitored and what might happen in the future. Your preferences should be taken into account and you should be able to be involved in decisions about your care. Discussions should include your parents or carers if appropriate. People who have had acute kidney injury should be given information about how they can manage their condition, sources of support and any ongoing treatment (including dialysis). You can find out more from the organisations listed in the section called Sources of advice and support. Parents and carers should also be given information.
