© 2017 selection and editorial matter, Emmanuel Tsekleves and Rachel Cooper. The chapter describes the development of care bundle documentation, through an iterative, user-centred design process, to support the recognition and treatment of acute kidney injury (AKI). The chapter details stages of user and stakeholder consultation, employed to develop a design response that was sensitive to user experience and need, culminating in simulation testing of a near final prototype. The development of supplementary awareness-raising materials relating to the main care bundle tool is also discussed. This information design response to a complex clinical decision-making process is contrasted with other approaches to promoting AKI care. The need for different but related approaches to the working tool itself and the tool's communication are discussed. More general recommendations are made for the development of communication tools to support complex clinical processes.
