The Alliance Conversation Series
Advancing Living Donation & Transplantation by Improving Patient Education and Maximizing Resources

Presented on: Tuesday, October 31, 2023

Facilitating living donation, especially within minority populations, continues to present challenges not only as it relates to getting patients transplanted but also with respect to identifying donors. Common barriers to effective care can be attributed to inconsistencies identified at the system-level from an operational perspective as well as patient-driven concerns such as financial limitations and the emotional and/or physical burden placed on recipients and their potential donor. During this discussion, we will welcome leaders from the community to share insight into some of the common barriers identified and offer resources to aid transplant centers in providing the patient support needed to overcome some of these barriers.

  • List the common challenges and barriers associated with living donation.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the various patient readiness stages to effectively determine next steps based on their individual needs and interests.
  • Apply lessons learned to develop improved patient education materials and resources to assist patients interested in pursuing living donation.
