  • Description

    The research groups "Transplant Psychology" and "Substance Abuse- and Rehabilitation Research" merged in 2018 to form the present research group "Transplant Psychology, Substance Abuse- and Rehabilitation".

    The research topics of the group concern care-related topics from the fields of transplant psychology and substance-related disorders. These include questions of the organisation of care as well as psychometric topics or stress, quality of life and functioning of those affected.

    Overview of research topics

    For example, within the framework of the project "Early recognition and treatment of psychological stress", a screening instrument was developed with internal UKE funding, with which stress factors of affected adults can be recorded before and after organ transplantation.

    In the current project "Trans-Ver", funded by the Damp Foundation, this screening is being adapted for children and adolescents with liver transplants and their families.

    Another long-standing focus of work is the observation of quality of life, fatigue and psychosocial health after living organ donation. This concerns monocentric evaluations with meanwhile very long observation periods as well as the cooperation in the scientific steering committee of the Germany-wide registers Safety of the Living Kidney Donor-German National Register (SOLKiD-GNR) and Safety of the Liver Donor-German National Register (SOLiD-GNR).

    With regard to substance-related disorders, the last projects related to the implementation of guidelines in the care of persons affected with alcohol-related disorders (IMPELA project, funded by the BMG) and the implementation of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Participation in everyday care. In 2021, this work was awarded the Rehabilitation Science Research Prize of the Association for the Promotion of Rehabilitation Research in Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Schleswig-Holstein vffr.
