Health literacy in the context of renal transplant recipients

The overall aim for this project is to investigate and explore health literacy in the context of kidney transplantation and to develop and pilot test the effect of a health literacy intervention for renal recipients with low health literacy. Both quantitative and qualitative methods will be used. This will include survey data, clinical outcomes as blood samples and qualitative data such as texts from interviews, information materials and observations. The study consists of 3 sub studies: Sub study 1: A description of levels of health literacy in renal transplant recipients and correlations with graft function and compliance. Sub study 2: How do renal recipients understand and seek for health information – unpacking the concept heath literacy in the context of renal transplantation. Sub study 3: Develop and test the feasibility of a health literacy intervention for renal recipients with low scores of health literacy.
