Purpose / Goal

Transplants coordinated through living donation help to reduce the overall time spent on a transplant waiting list for patients awaiting a life-saving organ. During this webinar, we will be joined by Amit D. Tevar, MD, a transplant surgeon from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), and Diana Manucci, an Independent Living Donor Advocate, who will discuss the process of living donation from referral to long term post-operative care. Specific attention will be focused on ethics, behavioral and social evaluation/requirements as well as the role of the Independent Living Donor Advocate.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the medical, social and behavioral contraindications for living donation.
  • Describe the role and importance of the Independent Living Donor Advocate in the process of living donation.
  • List ways to facilitate the medical and behavioral/social evaluation for patients to have an efficient evaluation process.
  • Outline the ethical considerations for proceeding with living donation.
