This webinar is intended to educate donor hospitals, organ procurement organizations, and transplant centers about the inherent challenges of balancing the increased utilization of deceased donor organs while improving recipient patient and graft survival. In order to meet the ever-increasing demand for viable organs, new and innovative approaches in donor management, organ preservation, and donor-recipient matching are paramount to helping us solve these issues.
