The psychosocial evaluation is well-recognized as an important component of the multifaceted assessment process to determine candidacy for cardiothoracic transplantation and long-term mechanical circulatory support. Due to the lack of a consensus-based set of recommendations for psychosocial assessment during the evaluation, a committee composed of international experts representing the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) and collaborating societies was formed. This committee integrated expert opinion and conducted a comprehensive literature review to support the psychosocial evaluation content and process recommendations. These recommendations are designed to promote consistency across programs in the performance of the psychosocial evaluation. This session will review the recommendations for a psychosocial evaluation and identify factors that could impede recovery, compliance, and a successful postoperative period.
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Describe the content and process recommendations for a psychosocial evaluation to determine candidacy for cardiothoracic transplantation and long-term mechanical circulatory support.
• Identify factors that could impede recovery, compliance and a successful postoperative period.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of case managers, nurses, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, physicians and other health care professionals (HCPs) who are interested in cardiothoracic transplantation and long-term mechanical circulatory support.
