This study is conducted to better understand Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms (PTSS) in adolescent transplant recipients and their parent/guardian and to see if PTSS play a role in the way adolescent transplant recipients take their prescribed medicine. Target population: medically stable adolescent solid organ (e.g., heart, kidney, liver, lung, small bowel) transplant recipients and their parent(s)/guardian.
• The patient:
• and/or their parent(s)/guardian must be able to understand and provide informed consent in English or Spanish;
• is prescribed tacrolimus (either brand or generic formulation); and
• has been seen in the enrolling center's clinic at least twice in the last two years.
