About 5 percent to 7 percent of hospitalized and critically ill patients develop acute kidney injury (AKI) as a complication. In fact, in the near future, hospitals may be held accountable if patients develop AKI during their stay. In the general patient population, AKI can stem from various causes. The goal of this course is to increase nurses’ knowledge of the causes, types and phases of AKI and describe how to detect, prevent and manage AKI.
