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.
Overview: This conversation series will focus on providing information to transplant program quality professionals on the various performance metrics made available by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, with particular focus on the new metrics that will be used by the Membership and Professional Standards Committee (MPSC) of the OPTN to monitor program performance. The participant will learn where these metrics are made available or will be made available and will get a high-level overview of how to find and interpret the risk adjustment models that are used to adjust transplant performance metrics for candidate, recipient, and donor characteristics. After the core presentation, virtual breakout rooms will be set up to use the tools for your own centers and programs; individuals from SRTR will be available to assist you.
