Call for Case Studies: Living Donation Case Study Presentations

The founding faculty of the 8th Annual Living Donation Conference is pleased to announce case study presentations during the Essential Donor Team Concepts conference this May.

Take this opportunity to share with transplant colleagues your center’s journey down the path to gaining more knowledge of the essential aspects of clinical, psychosocial, advocacy, administrative, financial, quality and regulatory issues related to living donation. The program provides a foundational track for individuals with less than 2 years of experience in the care of the living donor. There will be an advanced track
for the experienced practitioners and continued education/plenary sessions for all attendees. The program is designed to allow all participants to have time to network and discuss timely topics in this ever evolving field of transplantation.
Selected case study author(s) will be asked to attend the conference and present during the various opportunities over the 3-day period.
