Abstract

The establishment of a new fiver transplant program requires enormous planning and resources. Extensive negotiations must take place to ensure institutional and departmental commitments to obtain the proper equipment, personnel, and other resources. The formation of a well-trained multidisciplinary team of physicians and nurses becomes the next step. Finally, ample time must be provided to adequately deploy resources, lobby referring physicians, recruit patients, and troubleshoot problems as they arise.
