Abstract

The overall goal of this study is to improve quality of cardiovascular disease (CVD) care, a leading cause of complications and death, among liver transplant recipients. Currently, there is a lack of liver transplant-specific CVD clinical practice guidance. The study aims to quantify opinions, knowledge and usual care patterns about CVD care after liver transplant from practitioners who provide care to liver transplant recipients across a variety of medical specialties and from liver transplant patients/caregivers in order to create new CVD care guidance for practitioners to follow so they can improve outcomes for liver transplant patients. For my role in this study, I analyzed the collected survey data from practitioners and liver transplant patients/caregivers, which will form the basis for a future CVD guidance document and implementation of this guidance into clinical practice. I used Research Electronic Data Capture (REDcap) software and then built three surveys about CVD care after liver transplant using the platform.
