Chronic Kidney Disease Prevention
            The health preventive topic discussed in the following paragraphs is Chronic Kidney Disease prevention, and the evidence based practice (EBP) resources used were the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney diseases (, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (, and The National Kidney Foundation (
The National Institute of Health is globally known as one of the major research agencies that provides credible, useful, and valuable health related information to professionals and the public (, 2018).  The NIH provides preventive information under the chronic kidney disease page, and topics such as risk factors, dietary modification, stress reduction, benefits from physical activity,  reducing alcohol consumption, and  quitting smoking (, 2016).   Kidney disease prevention information can be easily found, and it’s presented in a formal format. With each preventive measure, a link can be found where more information and tools can be obtained (i.e., NIH weight body planer) (, 2016).
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just as the NIH, is a government agency that not only informs the public on communicable diseases but offers a fair number of preventive measures for chronic kidney disease in an easy-to-understand format for patients and providers (, 2020). It briefly explains the risk factors and what can be done to prevent this disease. It also offers tips on the different preventive measures, education,  some topic related articles, and resources for the public as well as for professionals (, 2020).  The CDC site provides evidence-based practice (EBP) guidelines in prevention that are simple to understand and are constantly updated. 
The National Kidney foundation is a nonprofit organization that aims to provide prevention of chronic kidney disease through education and research (, 2021). Besides being easy to navigate, this site offers general information on chronic kidney disease prevention in lay terms and support for patients and families. The National Kidney Foundation also provides information, education, and resources through membership to professionals and providers (, 2021).
Similarly, the three sources provide ample information on chronic kidney disease prevention that cover the areas of risk factors, dietary recommendations, physical activity requirements, stress management and/or social determinants of health, following provider’s recommendation and monitoring. They also have additional information, education, articles, tools for both patients and providers, to successfully prevent the disease, their content do not seem to contradict each other, and their site navigation is easy. One point to note, all three have contact information for additional help, questions, or comments.  Otherwise, the way the information is presented differs between the three.  The NIH site contains much more articles, it contents appear formal, and shows more information in each page, that might seem overwhelming from a patient’s side.  The CDC has a moderate amount of information on each page, with some helpful education links for providers, as well as for patients, but still covers the same areas of prevention as the NIH.  The National Kidney Foundation is the one that presents the information in a nonformal way, directed to the public, covering the same areas of prevention as the other sites, but also offering to have questions and concerns answered by a medical professional.  The National Kidney Foundation also performs a small test to determine the level of kidney problem or risk of kidney problems and walks the person through a series of information and education on chronic kidney disease prevention, that is easy to follow and understand (, 2021).
