MOTA, Liliana Andreia Neves da; RODRIGUES, Lídia Filomena Soares Vieira  e  PEREIRA, Isabel Maria Gomes. The transition in liver trasplantation: a case study. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2011, vol.serIII, n.5, pp.19-26. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIII1102.

Context: health-illness transitions are very important in nursing practice. Nurses can play a truly significant role if they help a person to experience healthy transitions. A liver transplant patient has a huge need to adapt to new conditions. Objectives:to implement Meleis’s middle-range theory to an experience of health-illness transition of a liver transplant patient in a fulminant hepatitis context. Methods: we conducted a case study of operationalization of Meleis's middle-range theory in a concrete situation. Thus, an analysis of electronic nursing records was processed, as well as a semi-structured interview with a patient selected for the convenience of the case study. Discussion: Meleis’s middle-range theory is a viable theory in the field of liver transplantation. Based on this theory it is possible implement an individualized process, since it is possible to protect the patient´s sense of transition. Conclusion: it is essential that nurses base their practice on evidence in order to gain more sustained practices.
