Food & Thought: "Organ Transplantation: Views From Both Sides of the Bed"
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
Organ Transplantation: Views From Both Sides of the Bed
Marked progress has occurred in our ability to transplant cells and whole organs when damage to native organs has occurred from a variety of causes. The processes are quite different as seen by the care-giver, the recipient and the donor family. Yet many wait in vain for the life-saving procedure. The presentation will describe the current status of transplantation, impediments to expansion and potential solutions.
Speaker: John Daly, MD, Harry C. Donahoo Professor of Surgery, Surgical Director, William Maul Measey Institute for Clinical Simulation and Patient Safety, Emeritus Dean, Temple University School of Medicine
