From Prehab to Rehab: Improving Organ Transplant Outcomes with Nutrition

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Evaluate effects of a malnourished state on organ transplant outcomes and interventions to encourage “prehabilitation” in transplant candidates awaiting transplantation
  2. Analyze interventions aimed to enable nutrition “rehabilitation” following organ transplantation in transplant recipients
  3. Examine common nutrition-related side effects and drug-nutrient interactions associated with anti-rejection medications as well as food safety guidelines associated with immunosuppression
