Transplant story: a personal journey

In responding to a request from Ronno, a young Indigenous man, Menzies has filmed and documented his real-life journey showing what it means to face kidney failure, the need to travel thousands of kilometres from home to get treatment and the challenging processes associated with kidney transplantation.

Stemming from this documentary, Menzies are developing a number of resources to improve communication between renal patients and clinicians: Cultural Awareness Resources for Improving Communication(CARIC), Patient Experiences of Renal Treatment (PERT) and Information & Resources on Kidney Disease (IRKD).

Please see the Kidney Health page for more information on these projects.
