The transplant story: a personal journey

 

Overview

The Menzies School of Health Research along with funding from Amgen Australia, are conducting this project to produce a documentary of the real-life story of an Indigenous man facing kidney failure and considering with his family the implications of a live kidney donor transplant. The aims of the project are:

Documenting this journey serves two key kidney education purposes:

Filming commenced in early 2013 and will follow the family as they negotiate the health system and cover the sensitive discussions between family members and health professionals; the transplant operation; recovery of the donor and recipient; and the patient's return home to the Kimberley.
