Before the intervention, a study team member will explain the study design and use of hypothetical scenarios to the participant. The concept of randomization will be also be explained. The participants will be asked a few questions to assess their understanding of the study design.
Only those participants who understand the study design will be invited to participate in the intervention and will be randomized. For subjects who are randomized, a survey will be administered verbally to collect demographic information and information about their disease and severity of disease and comorbidities. A functional health literacy and numeracy assessment and health status questionnaire will be completed.
One group will be shown website A and the other group website B. Each participant will have at most 30 minutes to view the website assigned to them. After viewing the website, responses to the intervention will be collected. Sessions where participants are viewing the websites, will be recorded using Zoom. We will also see if you ever get listed for a transplant on the national waiting list by looking for your name on the national waiting list in the long term, such as at 3 months, 12 months after viewing the website and at the end of the study.
The 90-minute intervention will be administered remotely via email and zoom. The link to the websites will be sent via email and the intervention will be recorded via zoom. The recordings will be stored on computers at Hennepin Healthcare.
