Have you experienced telehealth as a part of your post-kidney transplant care since the COVID-19 pandemic

By July 31, 2020No Comments

What do you think about the use of telehealth in kidney transplantation?

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that many healthcare appointments cannot be conducted face-to-face. Telehealth, which refers to the delivery of healthcare through technology (e.g. mobile phone, video conferencing), is increasingly being used.

We are conducting online workshops with:

  • adult kidney transplant recipients (aged 18 years and over) who have had experience with at least 1 telehealth appointment.
  • family members/caregivers of kidney transplant recipients who have also experienced telehealth.

You are invited to discuss your experiences and perspectives of telehealth and the impacts that this has had on you. The one-hour workshops are organised by TSANZ and The University of Sydney and will take place online using zoom videoconference during the week beginning the 24th of August. Participants will need access to a device (e.g. phone, tablet/iPad, computer) with internet connection, and microphone/speakers/camera.

We hope this will help to improve the use of telehealth in kidney transplantation.
