Hepatitis C and Your Transplant
2020 Research Poster Abstract
A 2D-animated educational video was developed to help educate organ transplant candidates and their caregivers about organ donation from hepatitis C-positive donors. This new protocol at Toronto General Hospital (TGH) included an animation designed to augment the informed consent process. Patient feedback on the final iteration gave insight into the clarity and efficacy of the communication and the visual style of this animation. The authors found that patients were receptive to the use of this visual aid during the informed consent process.
