Description

Medication adherence is critical to the long-term health of liver transplant patients.

Yet, adjusting to the demands of a complex regimen and coping with the psychosocial issues commonly associated with transplantation can negatively impact disease management, with average rates of nonadherence among pediatric liver transplant recipients exceeding 50% and accounting for nearly half of acute rejection episodes.

Children’s Mercy Kansas City has created the Liver Transplant Psychosocial and Adherence Promotion Service to aid in facilitating long-term disease management, enhanced patient well-being, and optimal health outcomes.

Jamie L. Ryan, PhD, is joining us to discuss this integrated service and share how Children’s Mercy is treating the whole patient by providing comprehensive psychosocial services as a part of standard liver care.
