The Internet is a global communication network used by more than 17.6 million adults as a major source of current health information. Both the number of health-related Web sites and the number of Web users are increasing exponentially as well as reports indicating a growth in the number of persons who access the Internet specifically to retrieve information about organ transplantation. However, few are using this medium for posttransplant educational or psychosociaI purposes. Armed with this information, as well as a commitment from the transplant team, we chose to develop a Web-based educational program to facilitate posttransplant care for our transplant recipients. The purpose of this article is to describe the planning, development, and implementation of a Web-based education program for transplant recipients.
