Improving Kidney Transplant Access: Insights from a Groundbreaking Randomized Trial

Amit Garg and Stephanie Dixon of Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry will be presenting their research on “Effect of a Multicomponent Intervention to Improve Patient Access to Kidney Transplant and Living Kidney Donation: A Pragmatic, Cluster-Randomized Trial” during this week’s PCT Grand Rounds. The session is scheduled for Friday, March 27, 2024, at 1:00 pm eastern time. Garg, the associate dean for clinical research at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, is also the lead of the provincial Kidney, Dialysis and Transplantation Program at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences. Dixon, a biostatistician at the London Health Sciences Centre, serves as the program manager for the same institute.

The research focuses on implementing a strategy to enhance patient access to kidney transplant and living kidney donation. This pragmatic, cluster-randomized trial aims to evaluate the impact of a multicomponent intervention. The study’s findings could have significant implications for improving access to these life-saving procedures for patients in need. Those interested can join the online meeting to learn more about the research and its potential contributions to the field of kidney transplantation and donation.
