Patient Compliance for Transplant Caregivers A huge factor in having a successful, long-living transplant is compliance. Patient compliance with transplants can dictate whether a transplant will survive. Bad compliance could even prevent someone from receiving a transplant. There are many different factors that go into a successful transplant: medication compliance, compliance with nutrition, doctors appointments, insurance, finances, etc. You may wonder how you can help with the patient's compliance. You may also feel stress due to monitoring the compliance of the patient in addition to providing so much other care.
In 1980 Beck and colleagues completed a study about medication compliance in pediatric renal transplant patients. The study found that initially 26 percent of participants were non-compliant with their medication regimen post-transplant, and after extensive counseling and education 19 percent remained non-compliant with their medication regimen. Factors they found associated with non-compliance were adolescence, female sex, and family instability. Though this study was completed over 30 years ago, it still shows that with family stability, transplant medication compliance may improve.
A different study completed in 1999 by Dew and colleagues found that after heart transplants, focusing on patients' psychosocial status improved medication compliance which will further improve physical health outcomes. This study helps show that by working with the patient and family post-transplant to ensure their psychosocial status is stable may assist in prolonging their life. This can be done in many ways, including counseling for mental health illnesses, assistance with insurance and financial issues, and even assisting in family issues.

in The Bible
For there is no good tree which produces corrupt fruit, nor a corrupt tree which produces good fruit
for every tree is known by its own fruit, for figs are not gathered from thorns, nor grapes vintaged from a bramble.
The good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, brings forth good; and the wicked [man] out of the wicked, brings forth what is wicked: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things that I say
The topics of this show are based on Lakota Star Knowledge and may include viewing current events from the Ancient Lakota perspective. This show's objective is perpetuate peace among all people, as the foundation of all universes is based on "Mitakuye Oyas'in". The Lakota Star Knowledge definition of "Mitakuye Oyas'in" is that before you can be at peace with all the relatives throughout all universes, you must first have peace among all the relatives within your own inner universe. The mind, body, soul and emotions are all connected to each other. When you do your best in nurturing these four parts, you will establish peace within yourself. Only then are you able to be at peace with all creation around you.
