Summary

The purpose of this study is to address a gap in knowledge needed for care of children with solid organ transplantation (SOT) and their parents by combining mHealth technology with an individualized family centered self-management intervention (referred to as myFAMI). This study is critical to the increased understanding of hospital to home transition and family management at home with the potential to transform the way clinicians approach the care of complex chronic illness children and families.
