This symposium will look at improving organ utilisation decisions in deceased donor kidney transplantation.

Educational Aims:

  1. to better understand the context of UK deceased donor kidney transplantation in terms of patient outcomes on the national waiting list, and post-transplant
  2. to better understand the current and expected national deceased donor kidney offering schemes in the UK and pathways through which kidneys can be implanted
  3. to appreciate the existing UK evidence-base for the use of increased risk deceased donor kidneys, and the infrastructure to support decision-making
  4. to develop a collaborative framework for approaching complex organ utilisation decisions in deceased donor kidney transplantation

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to demonstrate knowledge of outcomes for patients on the national waiting list and post-transplant, knowledge of deceased donor kidney offering schemes in the UK, understanding of the evidence-base that guides organ acceptance and decline, and skills in decision-making around deceased donor kidney offers.

A full programme of the symposium is now available.
