Implementation science to improve cardiovascular outcomes among liver transplant recipients

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Liver transplantation is a life-saving procedure for patients with end-stage liver disease, but survival after liver transplant is limited by preventable cardiovascular disease comorbidities and events. This project will benefit public health by developing a liver-transplant specific cardiovascular disease clinical practice guideline and then use principles of implementation science to implement the guideline in a pilot setting. The intervention developed will target improving cardiovascular disease outcomes among a high-risk population and maximize the benefit of scarce donated organs.
