Free CPD opportunity for nurses: What are the best methods for learning about chronic kidney disease?

  19 February 2020  University of Newcastle   |   Third party content – view disclaimer

Are you a practice nurse looking for a free CPD opportunity while making a difference for the one in three Australians at increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD)?

We are looking for general practice nurses to participate in a randomised controlled trial evaluating an infographic poster compared to a e-learning program to improve knowledge related to CKD risk factors and screening practices. Depending which group you are randomised to, we expect that this will take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. A CPD certificate will be awarded upon completion for your professional portfolio.

If you are interested in participating, please visit to access the participant information statement and study registration page.

All of the surveys are anonymous; however, you will be required to provide your name and email address so we can register you for the trial and send you your CPD certificate on completion. If you have any questions about this research, you can contact the researcher by email to

This project is endorsed by Kidney Health Australia and considers evidence based screening practices and practical real world solutions to initiate CKD screening in the general practice setting.
