Abstract

Working After Lung Transplantation Abstract. Whether patients return to work after a successful lung transplant depends on various factors. The best predictive factor for employment after transplantation is the employment status before transplantation. Currently, there is no internationally standardized procedure regarding the questions of when and according to what criteria patients should be reintegrated into the working environment after lung transplantation. The risk of infection at the workplace/during the work activity should definitely be assessed before resuming work: a detailed work history is mandatory, an additional workplace inspection a further option. Advice should be based on the medical literature and general recommendations, and psychosocial factors must also be taken into account. In case of ambiguities, an interdisciplinary discussion is recommended.
