My Master's Research Project was created for St. Joseph's Hamilton Healthcare Kidney Transplant Program. transPLANTS: An Animated Guide to Renal Transplantation is a 2D patient education program detailing the process of kidney transplantation with animated illustrations. It uses a unique visual metaphor to educate fundamental concepts surrounding the immune system and immunosuppression therapy, classes and side effects of immunosuppressive medications, and kidney healthcare strategies.
In September 2017, transPLANTS: An Animated Guide to Renal Transplantation was selected as a Top 3 National Finalist in CST-Astellas Transformative Thinking in Transplantation T3 Competition and received funding support to be expanded to additional modules.
There are currently three animated modules: Module 1: Understanding Transplant Immunology, Module 2: Immunosuppressant Medications, and Module 3: Donor Lists & Options.
