The Acute Dialysis Quality Initiative (ADQI) is an ongoing process that seeks to produce evidence-based recommendations for the prevention and management of acute kidney injury (AKI) and on different issues concerning acute dialysis. Our methods involve a combination of both expert panel and evidence appraisal, and this approach was chosen to achieve the best of both options. This approach has led to important practice guidelines with wide acceptance and adoption into clinical practice. We further recognize that additional research will be needed and have proposed specific studies that will help move this field forward.
