Summary

The setup of a long-term transplant clinic and the essential functions and components of a transplant survivorship care program are outlined. Different models of survivorship programs and follow-up clinics are considered, and the minimal requirements and the possible barriers discussed. In the first part of the chapter we present the lessons learned from the experience of cancer survivorship programs. In the second part we concentrate on the particular aspects of transplant long-term clinics and follow-up programs of transplanted survivors.
