Living donor transplantation are the outcomes good enough

Living donor transplantation: are the outcomes good enough?

Advantages

Reduces the waiting list

Increases craft survival

Are the outcomes good enough?

Should we pursue living donation?

Are the better outcomes worth the costs?

Are the outcomes more valuable than the cost to overcome the barriers

From a descriptive point of view…

The answer is might be no…

Living donation is not widely pursued

The effects do not outweighed the cost to overcome the barriers


Barriers

Barriers

  • What are the barriers?

  • Sometimes hard medical issues…

  • But most often soft issues

    • Legal

    • Cultural

    • Organizational

    • Psychological


Psychological barriers

Psychological barriers

  • Negative emotions towards living donation

    • Inappropriate emotions

    • Issues that related to inappropriate emotions …

  • Information

    • Wrong information

  • Risk perception

    • Wrong risk perception

  • Communication between patient and donor

    • Blocked communication

* Kranenburg LW, Zuidema WC, Weimar W, Hilhorst MT, IJzermans JN, Passchier J, Busschbach JJ. Psychological barriers for living kidney donation: how to inform the potential donors? Transplantation. 2007 Oct 27;84(8):965-71


What can we do

What can we do?

  • How can we change…

    • Wrong information

    • Wrong risk perception

    • Blocked communication

  • Talking with the potential donor and patient


Rational

Rational

Emotion

  • More and better information…

  • Gives more appropriate emotions

Information

Interpretation


Not so rational but reality

Not so rational,.. but reality

Emotion

  • Better (more appropriate) emotion

  • Better interpretation of information

Information

Interpretation


Most likely model

Most likely model…

Interpretation

Emotion

  • Need to work on both information and emotion

  • Next question: how?

    • Talking with the patient and the potential donor

  • But there is not yet a ‘evidence based’ way…

Looking for the best psychotherapy

Looking for the best psychotherapy..

  • Not much difference between psychotherapies

    • Many very different therapies seem to work equally well

  • Research into non-specific factors

    • Success factors in counseling

  • Most important non-specific factors

    • Therapeutic alliance

    • Therapy adherence

    • System involvement

      • Family

      • Friends


Therapeutic alliance

Therapeutic alliance

  • Biggest generic success factor

  • Sexton & Wiston (1992)

    • “…research has confirmed [that] the success of any therapeutic endeavor depends on the participants establishing an open, trusting, collaborative relationship or alliance.”

      • http://personcentered.com/research.html

  • Control of emotion

    • Safe environment

  • How do we establish such alliance

    • Listening and talking…

    • Is it so simple?


Counter transference

Counter-transference

  • Our own ‘psychological schemes’ interfere

  • Alternatively: Use theoretical scheme

  • It does not matter much which…

    • Behavioral therapy

    • Cognitive therapy

    • Schema focus

    • Mentalisation

  • Reduces influence of own ‘psychological schemes’

    • Helps to build a “…open, trusting, collaborative relationship or alliance.”

    • In order to control emotions


Treatment adherence

Treatment adherence

  • Treatment adherence is fatal

    • It does not matter which therapy

    • As long as one use ONE therapy

  • Created a consistent…

    • Framework

    • Language

    • In a confusing world

  • Thus consistency is important

    • In time

    • Within the team

    • Protocols: adherence


Involve system

Involve system

  • Patient part of ‘system’

  • System

    • Family

    • Friends

    • College's

    • Neighborhood

  • System is strong

    • Involve system when necessary

  • In living donation, the system is important

    • Obviously…the donor is part of the system


3 success factors

3 success factors

  • Therapeutic alliance

  • Adherence to ‘a’ therapy

  • Involve system


What stops us

What stops us?

  • Fear for pressure on the potential donor

    • But we put pressure on patients on a routine basis

    • “If you don’t take the medicine you will become sick”

  • Not the medical domain

    • The donor is not a patient

  • It is not ethical…

    • to talk to the potential donor


Not the medical domain

Not the medical domain?

  • Potential donor is not a patient

    • Excludes caregivers

    • Exclude prevention

    • Suggests that patients are independent subjects, and not part of a system

  • The potential donor is in the medical domain


Not ethical

Not ethical?

  • In spoken language: good or bad

  • In science: consistent set of rules

    • Rules that are valid

    • Rules we agree on…

  • Is talking with the potential donor and patient ethical?

    • Is there a consistent set of rules?

      • Rules that are valid

      • Rules we agree on…

    • That forbid or allow such interference


Forbid interference

Forbid interference

  • Non-directivity and value neutrality

    • Talking with the potential donor is directive

    • But there is no such thing as non-directivity and value neutrality in counselling in general

      • This rule can not applied validly anywhere

  • One should not change personal beliefs

    • Assumes that beliefs are stable,… which they are not

      • Personal beliefs have formed…

      • There is no reason to believe they are completed

    • Assumes that beliefs are always right… which they are not

    • Assumes that it possible not to interfere…

  • No consistent sets of rules..


Allow interference in beliefs

Allow interference in beliefs

  • Stephen Toulmin

    • Beliefs are a model of logical arguments

    • Arguments are not fixed, but dynamic,

    • Interferences can refine the model of arguments

  • Rawls

    • Beliefs are a model of reflective equilibrium

    • Beliefs represents a network of idea’s and facts

    • Interferences can help to keep communication within the network open


It is ethical to talk to the donor

It is ethical to talk to the donor*

  • Ethics is a consistent set of rules

    • Rules we would like to endorse

  • Set of rules that hold back interventions

    • Seems to be inconsistent

  • Set of roles that allow interventions

    • Consistent

    • Outcome in terms of process variables

* Hilhorst MT, Kranenburg LW, Busschbach JJ. Should health care professionals encourage living kidney donation? Med Health Care Philos. 2007;10(1):81-90


Existing interventions

Existing interventions

  • Most standard

    • Physician talks with patient

      • Information

      • Emotion regulation

    • Patient talks with potential donor

      • Patients brings donor to the physician

  • More active towards donor…. (Rotterdam)

    • Information meetings

    • For both patients and relatives (perhaps the donor)

    • “semi targeted” information towards donor


Norwegian approach

Norwegian approach

  • Dr. Anders Hartmann

  • The physician communicates directly with the potential donor

  • Physician discusses system with patient

    • Physician asks permission from patient

    • And calls the donor

    • No motivation of any refusal is given: “donor is not suitable”


Norwegian approach will be appreciated

Norwegian approach will be appreciated


James rodrique

James Rodrique

  • Activates communication in family (systems)

  • “Very local” information meeting

  • Especially in minorities

  • RCT results:

    • Increase in knowledge

    • Willingness to discuss living donation

    • Decrease concerns

  • Outcome in terms of better model of arguments
