The University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta is the location of one of the first successful kidney transplants in Canada. Since then, thousands of patients have received a kidney transplant in the same hospital. When patients receive a kidney transplant, they require a patient education reference tool to help them sustain their kidney function and to maintain it competently and safely. A new and improved patient information resource will help patients who have received a kidney transplant optimise the success of their new kidney. This new patient resource will ensure patients have the most current and precise information they need to take care of their new functioning kidney for years to come.
