The Information Standard

Information to help understand childhood liver disease is often the first need of parents and young people when faced with waiting for or receiving a diagnosis. With the internet providing so much information it can be hard to know if the source can be trusted, is accurate, up to date or, if medical information, verified by a healthcare professional.

Organisations that adopt the Information Standard are demonstrating their commitment to trustworthy health and care information as well as providing assurances of the quality of their internal processes.

What is The Information Standard?

The Information Standard is a certification programme from NHS England for all organisations producing evidence-based health and care information for the public.

Children’s Liver Disease Foundation has achieved The Information Standard after undergoing a rigorous assessment to check that the information CLDF produces is clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based and up-to-date.

As we review our literature we will be adding the Information Standard quality mark to more and more information we produce.

For further information please visit the Information Standard website:
