Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME): AKI in Heart Transplant: A Use Case for Clinical Pathways

October 29, 2021 | 8:00am - 9:00am

Pediatric Grand Rounds 

Development, Implementation and Outcomes of Clinical Pathways: Building on Experience from Acute Kidney  Injury in Heart Transplantation

Presented By:
Seth Hollander, MD
Clinical Associate Profesor, Pediatric Cardiology
Stanford School of Medicine

Claudia Algaze Yojay, MD
Assistant Professor, Pediatric Cardiology
Stanford School of Medicine

Session Description:
Clinical pathways have the potential to integrate evidence and consensus-based care seamlessly into patient care delivery. In this session, we present our experience with a renal protection clinical pathway. We will share what we learned about predisposing factors for acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric patients undergoing heart transplant, and how we came together across disciplines to develop and implement a clinical pathway that was associated with a reduction in postoperative AKI. 

Education Goals:

  • Describe what we learned about the hemodynamics that predispose patients to postoperative acute kidney injury
  • Descibe the renal protection pathway including development, implementation, and impact assessment
  • Describe best practices associated with susccesful clinical pathway development and implementation
  • Briefly present clinical pathway development resources at LPCH
