Presented on February 28, 2019

Continuing education credits available until:
February 28, 2020


The implementation of good nutrition plays a key role in transplantation. Special considerations must be made when caring for a recipient post-surgery in order to maintain organ function and the patient’s overall health. Unfortunately, post-transplant nutrition has proven to be a struggle for patients and their caregivers. As a result, transplant programs are often faced with the challenge of managing the opposing perspectives of the healthcare team and their patients. Join us as we hear from two knowledgeable transplant dietitians who will share their experiences, strategies, and innovations pertaining to post-transplant nutrition.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Identify common post-transplant nutrition issues and potential barriers.
  • List ways to bridge the gap between patients and the medical team regarding nutrition.
