Abstract

Previous research in quality of life (QoL) in renal transplant recipients has identified three factors predictive of improved QoL: reduction in adverse events, facilitation of employment, and enhancement of social support. After a decade of QoL outcome research, the researchers have proposed a multidisciplinary approach to posttransplant care by developing a clinical pathway using the three predictive factors. Putting into practice the research outcome, this pathway systematically addresses and evaluates each of the study arms and the impact on QoL. A clinical team has been instrumental in developing a model of practice that incorporates the research outcomes.
