Description

The preoperative psychological evaluation is equally as important as the medical evaluation in determining a patient’s candidacy for transplant. The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is the largest integrated healthcare system in the U.S. and has offered organ transplant services since 1962. While many VA facilities have health psychologists serving on interdisciplinary teams who provide services to Veterans who are undergoing evaluation for transplant, some facilities do not and it is up to generalist clinicians to provide these services. This presentation will highlight the scope of transplant care in VA and provide a guide to inform clinical assessment and treatment of Veterans seeking a solid organ transplant.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists
Educational Goal

The educational goal of this workshop is to increase knowledge about transplant care in VHA facilities and provide information about clinical assessment and treatment of Veterans seeking a solid organ transplant.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the role of a psychologist in transplant care.

  • Identify 2 or more psychosocial contraindications for transplant.

  • Identify and describe the Cultural Formulation Interview and prepare to utilize it to assess for and promote increased adherence as it relates to transplant care.
