MIDLOTHIAN, VA (October 1, 2009) –
The Fistula First Breakthrough Initiative (FFBI) launches dynamic 508-compliant website www.fistulafirst.org
“Everything you want to know about Fistula First is now easier to find on FistulaFirst.org,” said Jay Wish, MD, FFBI Clinical Consultant. “The redesign provides a fresh, user-friendly look and feel. The website is easy to navigate, attractive and accessible to all visitors, including people with visual or other physical disabilities.”
The redesign includes a new Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) page with resources for primary care providers, as well as an extensive bibliography of articles that will help increase AV fistula rates and an archives section that will help keep featured items current. The site also features a growing community of links to a number of related websites.
“I find great value in the Best-Demonstrated Practices section and hope that others will submit successes that they’ve experienced in reaching their AV fistula goals,” said Lynda Ball, MSN, RN, CNN, Quality Improvement Director for Northwest Renal Network, who led the redesign. “This website is the perfect venue to share success stories.”
Lynda was assisted by Peggy Lynch, BSN, RN, CNN, Medical Quality Manager, ESRD Network of New England, Inc.; Nancy Gregory, RN, CNN, Quality Improvement Director, Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition; Kim Deaver, BSN, RN, CNN, RN Administrator Coordinator, University of Virginia Augusta; and Gwen Williams, CDE, CKD Project Coordinator, FMQAI.
