Organ transplantation is no longer considered an experimental oddity, but rather a viable therapeutic option for many patients with end-stage organ disease. As experience with transplant has increased, the personal and emotional impact of the procedures have become increasingly apparent. In addition, the demands which transplantation place on the patient and their support network are extreme and coping skills are stretched to the limit. This book reviews conceptual issues relevant to all types of transplant. In addition, psychiatric sequelae which are more specific to certain transplant procedures are emphasized. This text provides both insights into the clinical management of transplant candidates and recipients and also indicates directions for future research.
