Evaluation of a Website on Living Kidney Donation for Hispanics
Evaluation of a Culturally Competent Website on Living Kidney Donation for Hispanics
The purpose of this study is to increase understanding about living kidney donation (LKD) among Hispanic/Latino patients and public by increasing knowledge and positive attitudes about LKD. Improving Hispanics' understanding about LKD will ensure that Hispanic patients and public are fully informed of the treatment options for End Stage Kidney Disease.
The shortage of kidneys for transplantation, and ethnic disparities in living kidney donation rates are major public health problems. Hispanics need more kidney transplants, yet receive fewer living donor kidney transplants than they need. Factors known to contribute to Hispanics' low rates of living donation kidney transplantation include cultural beliefs, lack of knowledge, and negative attitudes about living kidney donation. Web-based interventions are promising as Hispanics are using the Internet at increasingly greater rates. However, few websites about transplantation are tailored to potential Hispanic kidney transplant candidates or the Hispanic community. This study aims to develop, test, and evaluate the effectiveness of a bilingual web-based educational resource targeted to Hispanic patients and the public, which can serve as a low-cost, convenient, and culturally competent tool to enhance knowledge about living kidney donation. Improving Hispanics' understanding about living kidney donation will promote their autonomy and self-determination by helping to ensure that Hispanic patients and public are fully informed of the treatment options for end-stage kidney disease.
Interventional
Not Applicable
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Health Services Research
End Stage Kidney Disease
Behavioral: Website Intervention
Study participants will take the self-administered pre-test in the intervention arm and will be introduced to the website to inform the public of various topics concerning end-stage kidney disease and kidney transplantation. Few websites about transplantation are tailored to potential Hispanic kidney transplant candidates or the Hispanic community. This website is designed to fill the void and be an effective bilingual web-based educational resource targeted to Hispanic patients and public which can serve as a culturally competent tool to enhance knowledge and attitudes about living kidney donation.
  • No Intervention: Control Arm
    Study participants will take the self-administered pre-test and receive the standard of care. After taking the pre-test, control arm participants will be done with study participation for that day and will attend the transplant center's education sessions. All participants will receive a letter and follow-up call at about two weeks later to schedule the final survey. They will take a final survey via telephone about 3 weeks later. The final survey includes the same topics as the pre-test. They will receive a thank you letter and gift card by mail after completing the final survey.
  • Experimental: Website Intervention
    Navigate website plus standard of care

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Adults (age ≥ 18 years)

  • Family and friends who accompany patients to the transplant center.
  • Identification as Hispanic/Latino.
  • Ability to come to Northwestern 3 hours prior to the scheduled education session.
  • Ability to read. Reading ability will be assessed using the 5-point Likert scale question validated in English and Spanish:13 "How often do you need to have someone help you when you read instructions, pamphlets, or other written material from your doctor or pharmacy?"

Exclusion Criteria:
