Social Work

The Social Worker meets with patients to evaluate their social support system, coping ability, and past psychosocial history. The patient will need to identify a primary care partner, or someone to support them before and after transplant. The Social Worker also can refer you to community agencies that can address the changes and difficulties the patient and their family may experience. Assistance could include referrals to community transportation, or financial grant applications. Connecting the patient with others who

have experienced transplantation firsthand is another aspect of this role. One resource is the Positive Living Liver Support Group, which meets monthly.
