Purpose: This study examines factors related to readiness for hospital discharge in parents of children that have received a solid organ transplant (SOT). Background: Readiness for hospital discharge is an under-investigated topic in pediatric SOT. The time immediately following transplant is a crucial transition for children and families as they face the new challenges of managing the child's continued recovery following surgery and the emotional shift to managing a chronic illness. Methods: This study is a prospective correlational and longitudinal design following parents of a child that has received a SOT. Quantitative and qualitative methodologies framed by Meleis' Transitions theory are used to determine the associations of discharge teaching and care coordination on parent readiness for hospital discharge among parents of children who have experienced SOT. This study will also determine the relationship of parent readiness for hospital discharge with coping, utilization of healthcare resources, adherence, and parent adjustment three weeks following discharge. Parents of children that have received a heart, kidney, or liver transplant are being recruited from two Midwestern Pediatric Hospitals. Results: Data collection for this study is in progress and preliminary results will be presented. Implications: Nurses have an opportunity and responsibility to provide quality patient care in preparation for hospital discharge by the discharge education provided to parents and assistance with successful coping strategies in dealing with the chronicity of illness following SOT. The results will bring evidence-based knowledge to the practicing nurse about factors related to discharge readiness as families face this important transition. Although the study population is unique to parents of pediatric transplant recipients, the results may be extrapolated to parents of other chronic illness populations.
