Medication adherence after transplant is critical to prevent organ rejection. Novel adherence monitoring approaches can assist patients and provide certainty about adherence, but may also be experienced as intrusive or questioning. The research team will analyze attitudes of patients, caregivers and transplant clinicians towards emerging monitoring approaches in interviews and focus groups to optimize the potential for patient-centeredness in clinical care, research studies, and policy.
