This study examines the emotional and social functioning of intestinal transplant patients and their caregivers. Through the examination of psychosocial functioning and adherence of transplant recipients and their families to medical orders following transplantation, the findings will then be used to develop interventions that will improve patient health by reducing morbidity and mortality and lower healthcare costs.
The study is currently accepting male and female patients through the age of 18 that have received an intestinal and/or liver transplant between January 2003 and May 2006.
Boys: 5 to 18 years
Girls: 5 to 18 years
Participants will be asked to participate in an interview prior to their annual clinical visit at the transplant clinic. In addition to this 35-40 minute interview, participants will be asked to complete a written evaluation noting their thoughts and feelings regarding their physical, emotional, social and academic areas following the transplant surgery.
Duration: 1 day
