Abstract

This clinical practice guideline provides recommendations on the management of anaemia of chronic kidney disease (ACKD) and serves as an update of the 5th edition module published online in 2010. The recommendations in this update have been graded using the modified GRADE system to indicate both the strength of each recommendation (strong or weak) and level of evidence for the recommendation (A-D) (1, 2) . As in the previous module The Renal Association (RA) endorses the NICE Guideline for anaemia management in chronic kidney disease 2015(3) and adopts in this guideline update the nomenclature for classifying CKD from the NICE Guideline for chronic kidney disease in adults 2014(4) .
