Purpose: This study aimed to determine the effect of motivational interviewing on self-management of treatment regimen, medication adherence, and patient outcomes in adult kidney transplant recipients between 3 months and 6 months after kidney transplant in the transplant outpatient clinic.

Design: The research is a single-centered, single-blind, parallel and 1:1 randomized active comparative experimental study.

Method: A total of 80 individuals, of the 40 in the control group and 40 in the intervention group, will be included in the study. Motivational interview sessions for the intervention group will be held 3 times between 15-30 minutes with an interval of 10 days. The control group will be given routine care (approximately 1 hour of face-to-face standard training) by the nurse educator. Within the research pattern, intervention and control groups will be applied pre-test at the first interview and post test after one month. In addition, follow-up test will be performed 3th month. The data will be obtained using the Self-Management Scale in Kidney Transplant Recipients, Visual Analog Scale (VAS) for self-care and VAS for medication adherence. In the study, Standard Protocol Items: Recommendations for Interventional Trials- SPIRIT(2013) and CONSORT 2010 (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) were used.
