To become a ‘trusted information creator’ and achieve PIF TICK accreditation, Kidney Care UK had to undergo an assessment showing that our health information production process meets 10 key criteria.
This means you can be assured that what you are reading, watching or listening to is evidence-based, understandable, jargon-free, up-to-date and produced to the best possible standard.
“Gaining the PIF TICK shows we have a strong process for developing our health information resources," says Laurie Cuthbert, Director of Fundraising, Marketing & Communications at Kidney Care UK. "With so much information online it can be difficult to know what to trust. This quality mark is a quick and easy way for people to be assured our information is reliable and trustworthy.”
Our patient information booklets are produced in partnership with the UK Kidney Association (UKKA), the leading professional body for the UK kidney community. UKKA members work in clinical renal care, treating and caring for people with kidney disease, in kidney-focused research, or in related sciences and fields.
Full details of the PIF TICK are on the Patient Information Forum website.
