Abstract

Social support can have great influence on health, well-being, and general quality of life To promote awareness of the social network that surrounds each transplant recipient, transplant social workers are now using the Social Network Map as an intervention. Because perceptions of availability and accessibility of support are key elements in the use of social network resources, awakening an individual's awareness of available resources is a significant first step in enhancing social support and, ultimately, quality of life. The Social Network Map is used to establish dialogue regarding individuals' needs and sources of support, and then how the support system can meet those needs. Transplant social workers thus foster active use of those people in transplant recipients' networks who can meet the particular needs recipients identify.
