About this book

With the increased prevalence of kidney transplantation, transplant recipients are being treated in a variety of clinical settings – often beyond the transplant center. There is a greater need for clinicians and allied healthcare professionals to have appropriate guidance on managing these patients. Kidney Transplantation offers the latest evidence-based information on the full range of dilemmas in the medical management of kidney transplant recipients before, during and after transplantation. Beginning with the selection of patients who are candidates for transplantation, this authoritative guide covers the care of the patient on the waiting list and evaluation of donors, preoperative care, induction and immunosuppression maintenance.  This wealth of new information and guidelines will serve as an important resource for the best possible care for transplant patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to help healthcare providers in all settings understand health issues unique to kidney transplant recipients and how to best provide quality care for this patient population. The authors successfully accomplish this with a timely and relevant book. The audience is all providers of healthcare to kidney transplant recipients, including those in non-transplant settings.” (Kendra D. Conzen, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
