Adherence to immunosuppressive therapy after kidney transplantation is crucial to avoid graft rejection and optimise long term patient and graft survival. However, patient’s adherence is not always optimal. Our aim was to identify reasons for non-adherence and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) dimensions affected by immunosuppressant therapy (IT) after kidney transplantation (KT) including patient preference of once daily over twice daily immunosuppressive regimen.
