Research into kidney transplantation

31st of October, 2018

My name is Olivia Anderson and I am undertaking a Master’s degree at Victoria University of Wellington. My thesis is about kidney transplantation and I am interested in talking to people who have considered travelling abroad, or have travelled abroad for a kidney transplant. The aim of my research is to gather information on patients’ motivations and experiences. A key outcome of this study is to utilise the findings for preventative strategies in favour of increasing transplant opportunities in New Zealand. Although much more research will need to be done to help increase transplant opportunities in New Zealand, this study is an important first step towards that goal. If you wish to participate in the study or have any queries about the research, please contact me on for more information. All interviews will be confidential and can be scheduled at a time and place that is convenient for you. Thank you.
