Collaborating for Optimal Care
Clinicians don’t wait to intubate a patient at risk of apnea. They would never let a patient in cardiac distress lose pulse before starting treatment. But why, when patients are at risk for kidney failure, do clinicians sometimes wait to start renal replacement therapy until the condition is full blown?
This is the question that led to the Center for Acute Care Nephrology (CACN) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Launched by the hospital’s Division of Nephrology and Hypertension and the Heart Institute, the CACN has a clear mission: establish the practices and standards that will provide optimal care for children at risk of acute kidney injury and acute kidney failure.
CACN is collaborating with clinicians and scientists at Cincinnati Children’s and beyond to develop innovative care solutions for children at risk of acute kidney injury.
The Pediatric Acute Care Nephrology and Dialysis Fellowship is designed provide a protected research experience in this critical area of care and foster collaboration among nephrologists, intensive care cardiologists and critical care medicine specialists.
