Health education websites
Our vision is to help people with kidney disease in Australia and our region, with a view to improving their health outcomes and quality of life, and that of their families and carers.
We do this by developing and driving initiatives to ‘Prevent, Detect, Support’ and work collaboratively with a range of stakeholders and partners to carry out this critical task.
We have a rigorous quality assurance and approval process to ensure the health education information we present is evidence-based and reflects current best practice for each of our websites. This process includes:
Research, writing and editing – All kidney health resources are researched, written, edited and proofread by our publications editorial team who have extensive experience in the health sector.
Verification (external) – All kidney health resources are checked and approved by external content experts who are specialists in their fields and include clinicians, academics and other allied health professionals.
Verification (internal) – All kidney health resources are checked by our health publications editorial team and then referred to other areas of our organisation as appropriate.
Reviews and updates – All kidney health resources are reviewed annually by external reviewers and approved by our health publications editorial team.
