The Alliance Conversation Series
Ahead of the Bus: The NASEM Report, Our Road Map for the Future

Presented on: Tuesday, May 17, 2022

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 Alliance is not an advocacy organization and always intends to maintain an objective and unbiased perspective.

Sessions are designed to be approximately 30-45 minutes in length and encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: The in last 3 years, significant attention has been focused on organ donation and transplantation, resulting in significant changes to the governing regulations. Many in the field of transplant and donation were surprised by the breath of these changes and have had to scramble to change and improve their programs to meet new expectations. Two years ago, NASEM embarked on a project to review donation and transplantation and develop recommendations for future improvements. Precedence shows that regulators often rely on the work of high-quality independent organizations like NASEM. We posit that the new NASEM report in fact provides a road map to future regulatory changes.

  • Educate attendees about the content of the report
  • Stimulate further analysis of the recommendations
  • Encourage participants to look to implement changes in accordance with the report
  • Drive participation in advocacy to implement recommendations
