The Alliance Conversation Series
Advancing Equity to save more lives in the Latino Community, Part II: Case Studies

Presented on: Tuesday, September 19, 2023

The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.

The sessions encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: In the United States, the Latino community, especially those that are undocumented, face significant barriers accessing healthcare. In this conversation, we will establish a foundational understanding of the Hispanic culture, values, and beliefs in relation to donation and transplantation. Our specialized panel will review relevant donor case studies, from different OPO regions, in order to identify common barriers and challenges when approaching Hispanic families for donation in a hospital setting. Utilizing a culturally sensitive approach, our panelists will share best practices, tools and resources to overcome these barriers, in order to increase authorization for donation in the Latino community, serving them more equitably and saving more lives.

Added Learning Opportunity (optional) We encourage you to continue with us for an optional 30-minute Breakout Session that will take place following this session at 3pm ET/2pm CT/ 1pm MT/12 pm PT. These breakout discussions will serve as a value opportunity to connect with your peers in the community in small, collaborative groups and apply lessons learned from the general session. Following the breakout session, we will reconvene with our speakers to share key insights and strategies identified.

  • Identify common barriers and challenges when approaching Hispanic families for donation in a hospital setting.
  • Employ strategies shared to facilitate culturally sensitive discussions with potential donor families.
  • Utilize best practices identified to increase authorization for donation within the Latino community.
