Abstract:

The field of transplantation has grown significantly in the last 25 years. Improved surgical technology and important pharmacological advances have permitted transplantation to extend the lives of individuals. Perhaps in no other discipline is there as great a need for multidisciplinary dialogue, debate and approach to patient care. Along with the medical advances, the complexities of the biopsychosocial aspects have come to the forefront of research in this field. The issues raised throughout this book should serve as a useful introduction to important clinical issues such as: organ donation; ethical and psychological considerations; substance abuse; spirituality, coping and survival; and the needs of pediatric patients. This comprehensive volume will be of interest not only to those in the field of transplant medicine but also specialists in the fields of health psychology and behavioral medicine.
