Abstract Serious games are increasingly used in pediatric care, especially to educate young patients with chronic diseases, to improve their understanding of the disease and develop independence in disease management, as it can ultimately improve clinical results. This is also true for liver transplanted children and adolescents, who are not only challenged by their therapeutic burden, but who need to face transition to adult care, often without remembering their transplantation, which was performed, most of the time, very early in their life. KidsETransplant aims to improve long term outcomes of liver transplanted patients, using the principle of a serious game in 3D.
