Transplant outcomes are pertinent for a program’s success. Outcomes depend on many controllable and often uncontrollable factors. Patient selection is a key process to minimize poor post-transplant outcomes through the selection of appropriate patients for a complex regimen. A patient focused multidisciplinary team can create excellent outcomes through candidate selection, patient and caregiver education programs and transitions of care to the post transplant setting. This topic will focus and both pre and post-transplant strategies to maximize patient adherence.
