DIALYZING WISELY will immediately improve how we provide acute dialysis across all Alberta ICUs, and directly improve the quality of life of survivors of critical illness treated with acute dialysis in Alberta. The acute dialysis pathway implemented will improve the quality and performance of acute dialysis programs and for critically ill patients who receive acute dialysis in our ICUs, including reducing dialysis utilization, and importantly reducing long-term chronic dialysis therapy, realize health system efficiencies and unlock substantial savings in healthcare expenditures.
