Original Webinar Information
During this webinar, we will review the types of diseases that can be spread to recipients through organ transplantation with emphasis on the concept of anticipated transmissions vs. unanticipated transmissions. While disease transmission from a donor to a recipient mostly stems from infections, malignancies can also be quite impactful. Join us to hear from a leading expert in the field to learn more about disease transmission and the significant impact that the COVID-19/SARS-CoV2 pandemic has had on organ donation.
At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:
- List two examples of expected disease transmissions and two examples of unanticipated disease transmissions.
- Describe advantages and disadvantages of different testing methods for possible disease transmissions.
- Design a plan to evaluate donors for SARS-COV2 testing.
Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.
