      This activity is accredited by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. APEA is an approved provider of nurse practitioner continuing education. Program ID #2020-04-03P (Video), 2020-04-08P (Audio). Provider number 100820.


      The continuing education lecture provides an overview of liver transplantation and the important role of immunosuppressant therapy for transplant patients. Because these patients will be seen for usual care in the primary care setting, it is important that NPs are familiar with the medical issues associated with post-transplant care. The discussion includes information about immunosuppressant regimens, food-drug interactions, and significant complications associated with long-term immunosuppressant therapy.


      At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:
      1. Identify three complications that can occur after a liver transplant
      2. State the goals of immunosuppressive therapy and compare the various approaches used in the post-transplant setting.
      3. Discuss three considerations for major drug-food interactions with immunosuppressant therapy.
      4. Describe three complications associated with long-term immunosuppressant therapy.


      This course is taught by Amanda Chaney, DNP, APRN, FAANP, assistant professor of medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, and associate of transplant medicine, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL
