Teens Taking Charge: Transplant
Transplants are complex processes that require extensive preparation, multiple procedures, a large team of healthcare providers, and disciplined post-surgical self-monitoring. Teens are often scared when they first learn that they need to have a transplant and may lack the knowledge and confidence that they need. This may result in behaviours that jeopardizes the health of their new transplant.
Together with AboutKidsHealth, the experts at SickKids aim to create a comprehensive program that helps to ease teens’ anxiety around the transplant process and equip them with the knowledge and self-management skills to make the most of their transplants.
The Teens Taking Charge: Transplant program breaks down the key information into 12 modules that cover all stages of the process, including: assessment, listed and waiting, medications and vaccines, preparing for discharge, and life after transplant. The program uses teen-friendly visual styles to present the information in text, animation, interactive module, and video formats. The interactive modules outline topics such as the stages teens will likely experience before and after surgery, the variety of medical equipment that they may see post-surgery, and how to prepare for life after transplant using animated timelines with many illustrations and pop-ups.
