Recommendation ID

Further research is recommended to assess the effect of test-guided preventive care (see section 5.1) on clinical outcomes (such as length of stay in hospital, mortality and need for renal replacement therapy and progression to chronic kidney disease). Research should be done in children, young people and adults, but specific considerations may be needed for children and young people when care differs from that for an adult population. Studies should investigate the effects of both positive and negative test results on clinical decisions and subsequent care.
