  • It is found that due to lack of appropriate information, the patients and their caregivers are apprehensive about considering a transplant or kidney donation. The purpose of a series of such multi-lingual workshops was to educate and motivate the dialysis patients and their family members to consider a kidney transplant, as it is the only option that helps the patient to regain a good quality of life. 

     

    On 29th January 2022, Mrs. Ranjini Shankar MS conducted a virtual workshop in Kannada, for dialysis patients, caregivers and dialysis technicians at NephroPlus Dialysis centres in Karnataka.

     

    Mrs. Ranjini Shankar MS began by introducing MOHAN Foundation and TRIOMPH - patient support group. She then discussed the various challenges faced by the dialysis patients and shared that there was an opportunity for the patients to lead a normal, good quality life - through kidney transplant. Thereafter, she shared information on -

    • Types of donors - living and deceased
    • Who can be a living donor as per the law and what are the criteria?

    • Options in living donation if the potential donor and recipient do not match
    • What is deceased organ donation?
