“Providing Lifelong Support for Pediatric Recipients of Organ Transplants”
The Organ Transplant Law of Japan was enacted in 1997, paving the way for organ donation following brain death. Since then, transplantation medical care has been gradually expanding in Japanese society. As more people’s lives are being saved thanks to transplant surgery, there are calls for creating social structures that understand and support the actual circumstances, feelings and wishes of the transplant recipients. Associate Professor Etsuko Soeda has worked as a recipient transplant coordinator (RTC) at Keio University Hospital, where she provided medical and psychological support to organ transplant recipients. She is currently focusing on researching long-term care for patients who received an organ transplant as a child.
