Needs Statement

Organ shortage is the greatest challenge facing the field of organ transplantation today. Progressive expansion in the selection criteria has been advocated to address the shortage. This course is designed to close the gap in clinical practice by improving physician knowledge and competence to be able to recognize end stage organ failure and the need for transplant evaluation.

Target Audience

Internal Medicine, Primary Care, Pulmonologists, Cardiologists, Hepatologists, Gastroenterologists, Nephrologists, APPs, Registered Nurses, Medical Students and Fellows.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize end stage organ disease in patients waiting for transplant.
  • Summarize recent advances in improving outcomes associated with the use of higher risk organs
  • Compare and Contrast outcomes of transplantation with extended criteria organs to outcomes associated with not undergoing transplant.
