Depression rates among Americans are on the rise. Depression is often associated with medical conditions, especially those that are chronic and/or terminal in nature. Individuals who are depressed tend to have low work rates. Little is known regarding the relationship between depression and work for adult liver transplant recipients. The purpose of this retrospective survey was to describe the relationship between depression and work outcomes among adult liver transplant recipients. The theoretical framework guiding the study was Laffrey's (1986) conception of health. The sample was comprised of 230 adult liver transplant recipients from one large midwestern transplant center. The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was used to measure depression. Results indicated that respondents who were married, college educated, and who held a functional conception of health were the recipients least likely to be depressed post-transplant. Depression was less prevalent among working (mean BDI=7.7) than non-working (mean BDI=12.8) respondents. Further research is needed in order that nurses may better understand how depression affects work outcomes following liver transplantation.
