The purpose of this retrospective survey was to describe post-liver transplant work outcomes for female liver transplant recipients with histories of alcohol-related liver disease. The theoretical framework guiding the study was Laffrey's conception of health.
The Short Michigan Alcohol Screening Test was used to measure alcohol-related liver disease. Forty-seven female liver transplant recipients whose Short Michigan Alcohol Screening Test scores were indicative of alcohol-related liver disease comprised the convenience sample. Using a mailed questionnaire, post-transplant work and daily activities were assessed. Work was operationally defined as including either employment or household work.
Results revealed that 59% of the female recipients were working post-transplant and that working recipients had higher conception of health scores than did non-working recipients.
