A comprehensive profile of your personal, medical and family history will be compiled through the assessment process. All of this is important to help determine whether or not a heart transplant is suitable for you. You’ll be interviewed by various team members to determine whether transplantation is the best treatment option. You’ll also receive information that will help you decide whether you want to go ahead with the transplant.
The routine assessment includes consultation with the members of the transplant team comprised of a cardiologist, transplant surgeon, clinical coordinator, social worker, dietitian and psychologist. If required, appointments will also be arranged with specialists from other disciplines.
