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 and Chicago, and Vancouver (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!

The Lung Association of Saskatchewan (LAS) has provided funding to create a video series for patients awaiting lung transplantation. We are working closely with the VIP Breathe Ambassadors and progress is underway.
