[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: To study regarding quality of life of post-liver transplantation after discharge.
Methods: This is a cross-sectional descriptive correlation study regarding quality of life of post-liver transplantation after discharge. Data was collected using the Symptom Disturbance Questionnaire and Short Form (SF-36). Samples were 43 patients who received their liver transplantation at a metropolitan medical center in northern Taiwan. 
Results: Results showed that the physical component summary (PCS) was 44.76 and that the mental component summary (MCS) was 47.39. The scores, ranking from high to low, were (1) physical function (PF), (2) social functioning (SF), (3) bodily pain (BP), (4) mental health (MH), (5) general health (GH), (6) role limitation due to emotional problems (RE), (7) vitality (VT), and (8) role limitation due to physical problems (RP). There was positive correlation between the post-transplant period and the scores on PCS, RP, BP and SF; and negative correlation between the frequency of symptoms post liver transplantation and the scores on BP and VT. Gender, age, education level and marital status did not show correlation with quality of life. Those who received living donor liver transplantation showed lower scores on RE than those who did not.
Conclusion: The results will provide the nursing practice of liver transplantation.
