Collaborative Innovations in Organ Procurement: A Deep Dive into NRP Implementation – What Have We Learned?

Presented on: Thursday, February 22, 2024

Normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) is an innovative approach to maintaining organ viability following the determination of circulatory death (DCD). The comprehensive and collaborative approach required to facilitate an NRP recovery has increased organ utilization while reducing waitlist deaths. In this session, we will be joined by leaders in the community who will share their respective journeys to NRP implementation in partnership with their local OPO or receiving Transplant Center(s). Methods on how to engage key stakeholders will be shared along with examples of how to overcome potential barriers, resulting in more lives saved through this increasingly prevalent method of procurement.

  • Identify collaborative strategies to increase organ utilization through NRP policy and protocol development.
  • Utilize internal and external communication strategies to appropriately support the NRP protocol.
  • Describe and employ relevant best practices and clinical considerations associated, including staffing, supplies, and training to maximize donation through NRP.
