The Acute Kidney Injury Committee

Written by Jesper Lillelund

The committee is engaged in the development of uniform standards for defining and classifying acute kidney injury (AKI) that can be used in clinical research (trials) in patients with AKI. Consensus standards for diagnosing and classifying (staging) AKI that need to be validated in future studies have been developed. 

The Committee is involved with the organisation of several educational courses and organizes its own Symposia on AKI which is typically held as a satellite symposium to the World Congress of Nephrology (WCN).
