Transplant social workers conduct a psychosocial evaluation as part of the evaluation process for transplant candidacy. The evaluation includes assessment of ability to cope during stressful times, available support system and emotional readiness for transplant. Transplant Social Workers assist with temporary relocation planning and adjustment issues before and after transplant; they also provide ongoing support, brief counseling and referrals to community services as needed for patients and their family members.
