Videoconference: Guideline Development for the Assessment and Management of Chronic Kidney Disease in Indigenous Populations in Australia and New Zealand

May
22

22 May 2019, 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The ACI's Aboriginal Chronic Conditions Network, in collaboration with the Renal Network, is hosting a webinar by the Kidney Health Australia CARI (KHA-CARI) guideline group.

Since 1999, KHA-CARI has developed evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the assessment and care of Australians and New Zealanders affected by all stages of kidney disease. KHA-CARI is based at the Centre for Kidney Research (Westmead).

This webinar will present an overview of the process underway to prepare evidence-based guidelines specific to the needs of Indigenous peoples and communities, including:

  • the guideline scoping and development process
  • ensuring that the guidelines address the needs and priorities of Indigenous communities
  • planning for the community consultation process – Kidney Health Australia is currently seeking feedback through its national Yarning Kidneys program. This will be augmented by the Menzies School of Public Health in Darwin through its “Catching Some Air” project. A separate consultation program has also been undertaken in New Zealand

Communities serve a vital role in defining scope and content, ensuring it aligns with community members’ needs and priorities.

This webinar is an opportunity to provide feedback to KHA-CARI on the consultation program and guideline content

Target audience: This webinar is relevant to all health professionals who are interested in learning about development of clinical practice guidelines for chronic kidney disease in Indigenous peoples in Australia and New Zealand. It is also relevant to people interested in guideline development and community consultation.

The webinar would be of interest to all health professionals who would like to learn more about development of clinical practice guidelines for chronic kidney disease in Indigenous peoples in Australia and New Zealand and the critical role of community consultation.
