The process of researching and writing the article was lengthy and exacting but the final piece does justice to the project’s significance as a pioneering initiative with global implications.

One of the things that makes my job as a writer particularly worthwhile is being able to make a difference through my writing and there can be no greater satisfaction than writing to save lives.

Think Kidneys is a national programme from the UK Renal Registry, set up to raise awareness of the condition and save lives. I was appointed to help capture best practice stories and articles. The Nursing Times article charts the journey of a pilot project in Southern Derbyshire that wanted to create new ways of commissioning services in order to cut the number of cases of preventable AKI. It sets out the context for the project, the improvement journey, the rationale for involving nurses in the project, the challenges and impacts of the work.
