It took your patient a long, long time to get to this point, where they’re getting that longed-awaited kidney transplant.  They went through many different tests and procedures, meetings and interviews with innumerable transplant professionals, more tests and procedures – all in a process that seemed like it would never end.  Finally – FINALLY! – they get put on the waiting list for a deceased donor kidney transplant.  But that is just the start of another long, sometimes seemingly endless process of waiting.  This activity will explore the transplant evaluation process as well as how you can support them during this time and minimize burnout.
