Acute Kidney Injury Standardized Clinical Assessment and Management Plan for Renal Replacement Initiation


This study is of a clinical decision support tool for clinicians taking care of patients with severe acute kidney injury in the intensive care unit. Nephrologists will be given a standardized clinical assessment and management plan (SCAMP), which is a tool to assist clinicians in decision making on the need for renal replacement therapy (Mendu et al., CJASN 2017). In alternating months, nephrologists will be given the SCAMP vs. another simplified form. The goal is to test whether patients whose clinicians are asked to fill out the SCAMP have improved outcomes compared to the control group. The investigators are also collecting information about provider adherence to the SCAMP and deviations from the SCAMP recommendations to understand clinical decision making related to renal replacement.
