Summary "The purpose of this book is to place critically important information on the care of the transplant patient at the clinician's fingertips in a convenient, concise handbook. The audience for the book includes solid organ transplant centers (803 in the United States alone); and community healthcare providers, including nurse practitioners, primary care physicians, pharmacists, home health care nurses, and social workers. Most chapters are authored by both a nurse and a physician, to insure that both perspectives are included. With more and more pre- and post transplant patients being cared for in the community under managed care plans, this book provides an important bridge between specialists and community providers." -- BOOK JACKET
