Original Webinar Information
Is HIV an automatic rule-out for donation? Not necessarily! A disease that was once considered a death sentence and, therefore, an automatic exclusion for organ donation can now make a world of difference for potential transplant recipients living with HIV. Focusing on the procurement phase, this webinar will explore best practices for identifying and managing HIV+ donors, and provide guidelines for navigating the authorization, allocation, and recovery processes.
- Implement best practices for identifying and managing a potential HIV+ donor.
- Outline the authorization, allocation, and recovery processes for HIV+ donors.
- Identify challenges associated with the HOPE Act and HIV+ donation and apply the proposed strategies to overcome those obstacles.
- Use the resources available through the HOPE Help Line.
