Employment is an important component in the reestablishment of a heart transplant recipient's identity, self-esteem, and quality of life. An attempt was made to replicate the results of an earlier six-factor discriminant analysis that profiled posttransplant employment options for patients exposed to a center policy specific in the expectation of employment. Results indicate that the model accurately predicted 95% of those employed, confirming the model's validity. Implications for social work assessment and clinical practice are explored. © 1997 Sage Publications, Inc.
