There is very limited understanding and research on the kidney transplant community. Please help to contribute to the research by sharing your experience as a caregiver. If you are a caregiver or know someone that is, feel free to pass along the information in the flyer below. Caregiving is a demanding and stressful job that drains physical and mental energy. Research for caregivers of the chronically ill shows depressive symptoms are common! Lets help out our caregivers by contributing to research that will inform mental health practitioners what kind of services should be provided. Here's to physically and emotionally healthy caregivers of kidney transplant recipients all around the world!

Participate in a Study on the

Impact of Kidney Transplantation on Caregivers

 

 If you are or have been a caregiver for someone who has undergone a kidney transplant between the ages of 12-30, you may qualify to be a participant in a study on the psychosocial effects of kidney transplantation.

 

This study is focused on the emotional functioning, social functioning, stress, and growth you may have experienced as a caregiver for an adolescent or young adult kidney transplant recipient.  It explores how being a caregiver has affected you and your life.

 

In order to qualify, you must be:

 

a)  a primary caregiver for a kidney transplant recipient who is between 12-30 years old and received their transplant at least 1 year ago.      

 

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to independently complete an online survey. Each individual’s responses will be kept completely confidential. Participation in this study will take no more than 90 minutes for caregivers. Results of the study will be shared with interested participants.

 

PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A $10 VISA GIFT CARD UPON COMPLETION OF THE SURVEY TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONTRIBUTION.

 

If you are interested in participating in this study, please send an email to: caregiverkidneystudy.pgsp@gmail.com.

 

You may also contact the research coordinator directly,

Mariana Naldi, M.S., at 209-485-2937.
