SPaRO Trial Summary

This trial uses a smartphone application/web interface to collect reports of a pediatric liver transplant recipient's quality of life from the child and parent, in order to evaluate how well the application can help integrate these evaluations into care.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for pediatric liver transplant recipients aged over 8 and under 20 years, who had their transplant at least a year ago. They must speak English or Spanish well enough to understand the study and have internet access. It's not for those planning to change medical services within a year.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests how well a smartphone app/web interface can collect quality of life reports from kids with liver transplants and their parents. The goal is to see if these reports can help improve care by using the Pediatric Liver Transplant Quality of Life questionnaire.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves answering questionnaires through an app or web interface, there are no direct physical side effects like you'd expect with medication. However, participants may experience stress or discomfort while reflecting on their quality of life.
