A researcher, Jung Yin Tsang, in association with the Manchester University and the National Institute for Health Research is looking to establish an Acute Kidney Injury-Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement group (AKI-PPIE).

“I am performing a project with affiliated with the University of Manchester and NIHR SPCR, targeting AKI to improve patient safety. As part of this I am running a PPI co-design event to discuss and help shape the development of an intelligent computer system for healthcare professionals to monitor and support patients with acute kidney injury.

I am looking for patients or carers with some experience with AKI to take part. I wondered whether you had any contacts that would be interested.

The workshop itself is on 16th of July (2pm-4:30pm) in Manchester. Please see the advert below for full details. You can also sign up online:”
