New follow-up consultation
The transplant service provides pre-and post-transplant medical monitoring for over six hundred people who have benefitted from a liver, pancreas or islets of Langerhans transplant, combined or not with a renal graft. Until now, this outpatient care had been entirely provided by specialist doctors.
For patients whose state of health is considered to be satisfactory, a delegated medical consultation was set up in April 2017. It is performed by a nurse and is part of a partnership dynamic that involves patients more in their care.
If need be, the healthcare practitioner adapts the prescribed treatment dose and gets the changes approved by the doctor. If any side effects appear, the patient is systematically directed to the doctor.
