Abstract

Objectives: To investigate the cumulative return-to-work rate and to identify predictors of employment after kidney transplantation. Design: Retrospective, outpatient-based cohort study. Setting: This was a single-center study of the largest Japanese kidney transplant center. Participants: We selected Japanese kidney transplant recipients aged 20-64 years who were employed in paid jobs at the time of transplantation and who visited an outpatient clinic from December 2017 to March 2018. From 797 patients, we evaluated 515 in this study. Interventions: We interviewed patients at an outpatient clinic and investigated the timing and predictors of return to work using logistic regression models. Primary and secondary outcome measures: The primary outcome was the cumulative return-to-work rate, and the secondary outcome was to investigate the predictors of return to work after kidney transplantation. Results: Among the 515 included recipients, the cumulative overall partial/full return to work rates at 2, 4, 6, and 12 months were 22.3%, 59.0%, 77.1%, and 85.0%, respectively. The median duration from transplantation to return to work was 4 months. Regarding partial/full return to work, according to the multivariable analysis including all variables, male sex was a greater predictor for return to work than female sex (odds ratio [OR]: 2.05, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.32-3.20); a managerial position was a greater predictor than a non-managerial position (OR: 2.23, 95% CI 1.42-3.52). Regarding full return to work, male sex (OR: 1.95, 95% CI 1.25-3.06) and managerial position (OR: 1.95, 95% CI 1.25-3.06) were also good predictors. Conclusions: The cumulative return-to-work rate was 85.0% 1 year post-transplantation. Given that cumulative return-to-work rates varied by sex and position, transplant and occupational physicians should support kidney transplant recipients in the aspect of returning to work.
