KDIGO is developing the Clinical Practice Guideline for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) and Acute Kidney Disease (AKD). KDIGO invites you to share your feedback on the guideline Scope of Work, which outlines key questions to be addressed by the guideline update. The deadline to share feedback has been extended through Monday, September 4. You can download the Scope of Work and share comments via the feedback survey on the guideline website.


This guideline will be an update to the 2012 Clinical Practice Guideline for Acute Kidney Injury, accompanied by the conclusions from the KDIGO 2019 Controversies Conference on Acute Kidney Injury and the KDIGO 2023 Consensus Conference on Harmonizing Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease Definitions and Classification.


The Guideline for AKI and AKD is intended to include adult, pediatric, and neonatal populations, those cared for in the hospital setting, in the community, and in care facilities. The guideline is also intended to be relevant to people at high risk of AKI and AKD, including those with multimorbidity, complex healthcare needs, and chronic conditions that often accompany AKI and AKD, including CKD, liver disease, heart failure, and congenital heart disease. The guideline will support decision-making in the care of people in high-, middle-, and low-resource countries.


KDIGO aims to ensure that feedback from all stakeholders of this global guideline is duly considered before a formal systematic review of the literature is undertaken. Any ideas and suggestions on how to make this guideline as valuable to your practice as possible are greatly appreciated.
