Adherence Strategies in Pediatric Transplant Recipients

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Non adherence is a major problem in adolescent solid organ transplant recipients, leading to graft failure and loss, as well as interference with successful transition into adult care. In this podcast, Dr. Kurt Freeman, a pediatric psychologist and professor of pediatrics at Oregon Health and Science University, and Dr. Beth Foster, a pediatric nephrologist and associate professor of pediatrics at McGill University, discuss strategies to minimize non adherence with medication intake and follow up care.  

Both speakers indicated they have no relevant financial relationships to disclose.
