Kidney Transplant Education Needs of Individuals with Chronic Kidney Disease

Project Overview

Insight partnered with nephrology researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Kaiser Permanente to identify the transplant education needs of patients with early chronic kidney disease (CKD) compared to patients with late-stage CKD (or end-stage renal disease, known as ESRD). Currently, there are no metrics on transplant education for dialysis patients and patients in earlier stages of CKD. Kidney transplantation offers patients an additional 6 to 16 years of life and improved quality of life compared to remaining on dialysis. However, the majority of ESRD patients still remain on dialysis. UCLA and Kaiser conducted interviews and focus groups with CKD patients and their friends and family, and Insight coded and analyzed the transcripts and reported on findings. The results will form the basis of a detailed manuscript for publication.
