- Long-term outcomes of acute kidney injury:- What are the long-term outcomes of acute kidney injury in adults, children and young people?
- Rapid referral to nephrology services for moderate to severe acute kidney injury:- What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of rapid referral (within 12 hours) to nephrology services for adults with moderate to severe (stage 2 to 3) acute kidney injury not needing critical care?
- Definition of acute kidney injury – system for staging and detection:- Can a simplified definition and staging system, based on Système International (SI) units, be used to predict short- to medium-term outcomes in acute kidney injury?
- Introducing renal replacement therapy:- What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of early versus later introduction of renal replacement therapy in patients with acute kidney injury stages 2 and 3, when there is no urgent need for therapy?
- Preventing deterioration:- What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of continuing ACE inhibitor or ARB treatment, versus stopping treatment 24 hours before cardiac surgery and resuming 24 hours after, in people with chronic kidney disease and an eGFR of less than 30 ml/min/1.73 m2?
