Aftercare – A Multi-disciplinary Approach
During the past decades, organ transplantation has become a frequently performed routine procedure offered to patients with end-stage organ failure. Transplant recipients live longer, have a good quality of life, and represent therefore a rapidly growing population. Although the follow-up, and especially the immunosuppressive therapy, are maintained by specialized transplant centers, such patients increasingly appear in private offices or hospitals that lack particular expertise in transplant medicine. Thus, there is need for an educational network for physicians and health care workers and for guidelines how to care best for this cohort of patients.
