Most reviewed resources listed below use graphics to tell simple stories. They may also be appropriate for patients who have English as a second language.

Project committed to reviewing resources promoting healthy lifestyle and CVD risk reduction, but with kidney focus. Materials approved by our expert group were judged quality resources. many free and downloadable. Indigenous Australians are advised resources may contain images and voices of people who have died.
