The "Stanford Integrated Psychosocial Assessment for Transplant" (SIPAT)
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Start date||October 2011|
|End date||October 2016|
|Trial size||600 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01633424, CR-02|
Given the extremely limited availability of donated organs, transplant candidates must be carefully evaluated and selected to ensure the success of the transplant and value of the organ to the recipient. Medical criteria for pre-transplant evaluation of patients is well established, however, listing criteria for psychosocial risk factors (e.g., understanding of illness and transplant process, psychiatric history, support system, compliance, etc) is less standardized. The purpose of this research is to study the psychometric properties (e.g., predictive validity) of the new pre-transplant "Stanford Integrated Psychosocial Assessment for Transplant" (SIPAT) examination in patients who received heart, kidney, liver, or lung transplant and underwent the SIPAT evaluation before treatment. This new screening tool was designed to standardize the evaluation process of psychosocial risk factors and their severity, in order to enhance predictions of medical and psychosocial outcomes of patients post-transplant.
If the SIPAT is used for standard, pre-transplant assessment, risk factors that may be amenable to clinical intervention could be identified. In turn, this may assist in developing a comprehensive psychosocial treatment plan for each individual, with the ultimate goal of minimizing preventable problems, mitigating risk, and optimizing graft survival, patient function, and quality of life.
Graft and patient survival
time frame: Assessed at any given time post initial transplantation.
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
Inclusion Criteria: - Patients identified through chart review who were transplanted with heart, kidney, liver, and lung between 6/1/2008 and 7/31/2011 and underwent the SIPAT evaluation before treatment. Exclusion Criteria: - Patients identified through chart review who were transplanted with heart, kidney, liver, and lung between 6/1/2008 and 7/31/2011, who did not undergo the SIPAT evaluation before treatment.
