Event Details

 Program description

This educational activity aims to address medical, ethical and policy controversies that have direct bearing on current clinical practice.  The chronic shortage of organs for transplantation has forced the transplant community to develop innovative approaches to increase access to transplantation. Although successful clinical outcomes are reported at the level of individual patients, the overall effect of many of these approaches is modest, as evidenced by the relatively stagnant total number of transplants performed annually in the United States. This state of affairs has stimulated interest in re-examining the basis for current practices and evaluating the merits of new advances in the field.

 Target Audience

The proposed symposium is designed to enhance knowledge, competence and performance by addressing topics important to practicing providers, the general public and patient groups. With this aim in mind, the following groups will be invited to participate in the symposium:   US transplant surgeons, transplant coordinators, nephrologists, nephrology fellows, other dialysis care providers (administrators, dialysis nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, patient care technicians, dialysis technicians) and members of community organizations in cutting edge topics in kidney transplantation.

 Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

 understand the role of desensitization and kidney-pancreas transplants in the care of patients with kidney failure

  • incorporate different views of deceased donation into their approach to counseling bereaved families and members of the public
  • identify ethical dilemmas regarding compensation of live donors
  • examine causes of and remedies for racial and geographic disparities in kidney transplantation.
