Our team is very interested to learn about the public’s perception regarding alcoholism and the availability of liver transplantation. For the past 25 years, most programs have been hesitant to transplant alcoholics because of the concern for drinking after successful transplant. Without getting into the details of survival after transplant for those with alcohol related liver disease, the perception from the general public is that for many, alcoholics should be judged differently than non-alcoholic patients. This survey is a first attempt to better understand the thought process of the non-medically trained public.
Below is the link to our survey. We appreciate your participation.
