Overview

Transplantation Nursing Secrets serves as a reference guide for nurses caring for solid organ transplant candidates, recipients and living donors. Each chapter is written by a clinician who is an expert in the care of this complex patient population. The book focuses on the pre- and post-operative periods and also addresses long-term issues such as infection, rejection, nutrition, healthy lifestyles, drug interactions and psychosocial adaptation.
