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: In this session, we will discuss infections in organ donors and the risk of transmission to recipients. We will review current donor screening requirements. There will also be a summary of our understanding of the epidemiology of donor-derived infections and how this information has identified donors that can be used safely.
