In-depth reviews of the Think Kidneys AKI app.

Clinical review

: Jeremy Steinberg, GP, FRNZCGP
Date of review: April 2019
Comments: Think Kidneys is a national programme in England by the NHS with the aim of improving the care of patients with kidney disease - focusing mainly on acute kidney injury. Think Kidneys is essentially an app version of the British Kidney Patient Association information leaflets. This app is well presented but only has a focus on acute kidney injury. It is a pity that it only has cursory discussion on chronic kidney disease and so many topics are omitted.
The poster section and share by email function didn’t work for me. 
Safety concerns: None
New Zealand relevance: The app occasionally uses British brand names for medications. Some of the information is only relevant to the NHS in England.
