Hello there and welcome to Beats By Transplant Social Work. we're Kristin and Tiffany, your hosts for the show. We are so glad you are visiting our website and connecting with us.
Please visit the tab "Your Hosts" to learn more about us. But briefly, we are both certified clinical transplant social workers who specialize in all things heart transplant and LVAD, also know as a Left ventricular assist device. Our goal is to talk all things transplant and LVAD from the social work perspective and to bring the human element back into the world of transplant for our fellow social workers and our patients.
This podcast is intended for social workers that work in the field of transplant and/or LVAD. If you are a patient pursuing a transplant or LVAD or the caregiver of a patient, we welcome you here. Although we are transplant social workers we are not your transplant social workers. We hope topics discussed here may lead you to further discussions with your own transplant social worker. This also applies to other transplant professionals who may stumble into our show, we do not take the place or attempt to override you transplant social worker but provide perspective and hope this allows for more open conversations and collaboration with your direct social worker.
As you will soon learn, we are both VERY PASSIONATE individuals and although we may take the scenic route, we invite you along this journey with us!
We are hopeful to make this a safe space to learn, be refueled, be heard, and feel understood. We want to challenge each other to be the best we can for ourselves and our patients and give permission to challenge us. Our goal is to provide you with the most accurate information in the most respectful way, however we are human and we ask for grace and accountability. If we say something you feel is incorrect or inappropriate, please tell us so we can correct ourselves and work to be better.
