8.1.23 NotUsable Kidney


The Alliance Advancement Series
Kidney Utilization: Broader Sharing – Where Do We Go from Here?

Presented on: Tuesday, August 01, 2023

To reduce the number of non-utilized donated kidneys, organ procurement organizations (OPOs) and transplant centers have been exploring ways to partner together to identify best practices and implement process improvement measures. Over the course of this discussion, we will examine transplant center acceptance practices to better assess why kidney offers may be declined. Can we, as a community, create a consensus on the best approach to early acceptance and increased kidney utilization? Join us to learn more!

  • Implement process improvement measures to increase kidney utilization within an OPO.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of transplant center acceptance practices and why a kidney offer may be turned down.
  • Describe strategies to increase early acceptance.
