How We Produce Information
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.
The Information Standard
The Information Standard was a certification programme from NHS England for all organisations producing evidence-based health and care information for the public. Children’s Liver Disease Foundation achieved The Information Standard after undergoing a rigorous assessment check that the information CLDF produces is clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based and up-to-date. As of 31 July 2019 the Standard does not certify members but CLDF will continue to follow the principles and quality statements to ensure good practice in regards to development of health information. For further information please visit the Information Standard website.
