Prevention Strategy

An Action Plan to delay onset of end-stage kidney failure was developed from a Prevention Workshop organised by the Renal Network. The action plan has been submitted to the NSW Ministry of Health for review. As a first step, Renal Network members from nursing, medical and allied health disciplines have provided advice to NSW Health leading to the development of a prevention policy for screening and referral of all at-risk patients accessing the NSW Health system. This policy is aligned with the Kidney Health Check, developed by Kidney Health Australia.
