Purpose / Goal

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.

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

Overview: Cultural competence and efforts to accomplish diversity, equity and inclusion can seem overwhelming and challenging to many. What are some of the basics that are crucial to be able to more successfully accomplish the important desire of embracing and valuing differences? Could we even leverage these differences for improved outcomes in our interactions with our patients, donor families and even with each other? Join our conversation as we uncover those key ingredients that can set us on the journey to embrace and leverage our cultural differences.

Learning Objectives
