The research was descriptive and cross-sectional. The sample of the study consists of 38 patients with liver transplantation. Data were collected with the Patient Identification Form, the SF-36 Quality of Life Scale, the Modified Post-Transplantation Symptom Occurrence and Discomfort 58-Item Scale (MTSORD-58ᵀᴿ), and the Self-care Strength Scale. In the study, it was determined that the mean age of the patients was 48.13±12.90 and 60.5% of them were primary school graduates. It was determined that the quality of life physical and mental health score averages of the recipients were 35.84±9.21, 36.48±12.53, the mean self-care power score was 106.55±18.91, the mean symptom formation score was 133.07±35.68, and the mean symptom discomfort score was 69.63 ±37.84, respectively. 84.3% of the patients went to the center where they were transferred monthly according to the doctor's recommendation, 31.3% could not benefit from health services effectively, 24% could not eat according to their diet at the place where they went for the check-up, 25.6% could not communicate with the health personnel, 78.9% received income from expenses. are few, 81.6% do not work in a job that generates income, 26.5% cannot go to the TCc center due to economic insufficiency, 23.4% have transportation difficulties, 26.3% do not find a place to stay in the place where the transfer center is located, 7.9% go to the controls It was determined that he left the settlement and moved to the place where the transplant center was located because he had difficulties in arrival.
