  • Limited health literacy and adverse outcomes among kidney transplant candidates

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    M.A. McAdams-DeMarco

    Practice Gap

    Over a third of adults in the United States have limited health literacy and it impacts healthcare utilization
    and patient outcomes, particularly among kidney transplantation (KT) candidates. Recent work suggests
    that limited health literacy is a salient mechanism in access to KT and is associated with an increased risk
    of waitlist mortality. Yet, few centers screen for limited health literacy. This activity will help increase the
    awareness of limited health literacy in KT candidates among transplant specialists.


    Learner Objectives
    1. Become familiar with a tool to measure health literacy
    2. Identify the prevalence of and risk factors for limited health literacy among kidney transplant
    candidates
    3. Understand the consequences of limited health literacy for kidney transplant candidates

  • Prescription opioid use before and after kidney transplant: Implications for posttransplant outcomes

    Contains 5 Component(s), Includes Credits

    K.L. Lentine

    Practice Gap

    Opioid analgesics serve an important role in management of acute and chronic pain, but recognition of
    an “epidemic” of complications related to the misuse, abuse, and inherent potential toxicity of
    prescription opioids is a growing. Concerns about opioid-related toxicity are even greater in patients with
    end-stage organ failure due to altered drug protein binding, metabolism, and excretion. This activity will
    increase the awareness of transplant professionals of patterns of prescription opioid use before and after
    kidney transplantation, and outcomes associated opioid medication use in these periods. Such knowledge
    may help practitioners better understand the risk of transplant patients at their center, and direct efforts
    to mitigate risk, such as focused monitoring of support of higher risk patients over time after surgery.


    Learner Objectives
    1. Understand the patterns of prescription opioid use before and after kidney transplantation in
    the U.S.
    2. Understand relationships of pre- and post-transplant prescription opioid use in the kidney
    transplant population.
    3. Understand associations of opioid use before and after kidney transplantation with patient and
    allograft outcomes.
