The target audience for this medical event for physicians, transplant professionals, surgeons, nurses, trainees, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, transplant administrators, and other health care professionals with an interest in organ transplantation. This CME conference has been approved with a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
This innovative conference designed to juxtapose representatives from the academic, clinical, political, regulatory, industry, patient advocacy and research communities and, thus, providing a forum for constructive debate on key issues in a highly visible and interactive environment. The conference will describe the current status of contentious issues in transplantation and consider their future implications with particular emphasis on the ultimate goal of enhancing patient care and research.
This conference will focus on current issues in the field that are in varied states of transition, including factors influencing organ allocation, extending Medicare reimbursement for transplant recipients, the impact of increased oversight of regulatory agencies on quality of care measures, and areas that have an impact on special populations. An additional key objective of the conference will be to provide stimulus for subsequent interactions between regulatory agencies, leaders in the transplant community, patient advocates, and clinicians to foster continued evolution of these discussions.
Through these educational offerings, health care practitioners will be able to advance their knowledge and incorporate the most up-to-date evidence into their clinical practice and, thus, optimize patient outcomes. Participants completing the learning activities will be able to do the following:
• Evaluate options to revise endpoints to improve quality assessment of transplant center performance.
• Discuss current challenges with endpoints used to assess transplant acute quality. • Review the new treatments for transplant patients with HCV and HIV.
• Summarize the new trends in expanding the donor pool across the organs.
• Evaluate and discuss use of Hepatitis C-positive organs in Hepatitis-C negative recipients and influence on organ transplantation waiting list.
