The epidemiology of acute kidney injury (AKI) in the pediatric population has shifted. Rather than primary kidney disease, nephrologists increasingly encounter AKI as a secondary effect of systemic illness and its treatment. Children in this situation often have significant complicating factors; their initial illness may be the result of solid organ or bone marrow transplantation, sepsis or multiorgan system dysfunction. Caring for these patients requires effective collaboration between pediatric nephrologists and intensive care clinicians.
The Center for Acute Care Nephrology (CACN) offers the Pediatric Acute Care Nephrology and Dialysis Fellowship to prepare clinicians / researchers to better care for this patient population. The fellowship provides specialized training in acute kidney injury diagnosis and treatment to graduates of pediatric nephrology, critical care or cardiology fellowships. Our overarching goal is to enhance research and clinical collaboration between pediatric nephrologists and pediatric intensive care specialists, a shift that will lead to better outcomes for children with acute kidney injury.
