5th Annual Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation and Living Kidney Donation Conference is organized by University of Virginia (UVA) and will be held on Jun 20, 2019 at Omni Charlottesville Hotel, Charlottesville, Virginia, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 5.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Course Description: Kidney transplantation is the best option to restore quality of life for patients with end stage renal disease. Current regulatory mandates require that dialysis patients receive education regarding renal transplantation and opportunity for referral to a kidney transplant center of their choosing. Through partnership with dialysis unit staff, we are able to provide a consistent message about the lifesaving benefit of kidney transplantation, the best option for kidney transplant which is living donation and what patients will encounter as a part of their evaluation. New advances in surgical techniques have allowed for more patients to be considered appropriate for kidney transplantation. Also, expanded cadaveric donor kidney utilization has decreased wait time for patients on the UNOS Kidney Transplant Wait List. Understanding the management of patients that receive these types of transplant kidneys, empowers dialysis unit staff to more adequately support patients through their transplant experience should they require return to dialysis after their surgery. Educational Objectives: At the end of this course, learners will be able to: • Discuss the history of kidney transplantation and advances in the field • Describe characteristics of living donors which determine their candidacy for successful donation • Understand benefit of robotic surgery for kidney transplant recipients and living donors • Describe new frontiers in cadaveric donor kidney utilization and opportunity for decreasing recipient wait time • Discuss clinical challenges patients face and overcome in post-transplant management • Identify non-medical barriers to kidney transplantation that potential candidates encounter and discuss successful elimination of those barriers Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
