Physical activity is a standard recommendation following surgery, and it has shown to be effective in the recovery of many patients in the post-operative setting. The purpose of this change project is to promote physical activity, decrease deconditioning, and improve patient outcomes for patients in the post-transplantation phase. Researching this subject has led to the exploration of the following PICOT question: In patients that have received a liver transplant (P), how does the implementation of regular physical activity (I) compared to physically inactive patients (C) affect the patient's quality of life (O) within the three months after transplantation (T)?
