Winter 2019 update

Featured

Two multicenter randomized, controlled clinical trials are underway to test the effectiveness of the kidney videos on pre- and post-transplant outcomes with collaborators in Saskatoon, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax and Chicago (see team section and progress for more information).

Thank you to our funding partners for supporting these studies:

  • Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation (SHRF)
  • Saskatchewan Centre for Patient-Oriented Research (SCPOR)
  • American Society of Transplantation (AST), Transplantation and Immunology Research Network (TIRN)

A huge thank you to all of our patients who have participated and provided input  in the video development and review process – you are the inspiration for this project!
