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!
