Liver transplantation (LT) is the standard of care for decompensated cirrhosis. These patients are at a higher risk of developing chronic kidney disease after LT associated with high morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. Patient-level interventions directed at risk factors have shown to improve health outcomes in chronic diseases. The feasibility of these interventions in improving patient outcomes has not been studied among LT recipients. Our overarching goal is to improve kidney outcomes among liver transplant recipients. The aims of this study are to assess the knowledge of chronic kidney disease knowledge among liver transplant recipients and examine the effect of personalized intervention(s) targeting the risk factors for chronic kidney disease on kidney function.
