If you are registering offsite or from a mobile device, you need to use your work email address. You will require access to your work email to complete account activation. You can register your personal or work email address from a Queensland Health computer. The email you register will be used to send you important notifications about your account e.g. account activation and renewal notice.

A username is needed to login to CKN outside the Queensland Health network. Usernames start with 'ckn' (this will be automatically added for you - see below), but you can choose the rest of your username e.g. entering 'janesmith' will create the username 'cknjanesmith'. Please note that usernames are limited to 20 spaces, and no spaces between characters. Your registered email can also be used as an alternative username once your account is active.

Spaces are allowed; punctuation is not allowed except for periods, hyphens, apostrophes, and underscores.

If you have been issued with a staff payroll number, you must include it. Staff payroll numbers must be between 5 and 8 digits.

Terms & Conditions

  2. When you register you will be subscribed to a closed mailing list for CKN notifications, updates and newsletters. Your information will not be used for any other purpose or passed to third parties unless required by law. You can opt out of receiving newsletters at any time by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email.
  3. Activities prohibited by publishers' licences may result in cancellation of user access. These include multiple concurrent logins, excessive search quantities or excessive download traffic volumes.
  4. CKN users must renew their registration each year to comply with publishers' terms and conditions. Renewal reminder notifications will be sent to CKN users' registered email address to renew their membership.

Once you have completed and submitted this form an email will be sent to complete the registration process.
