The Alliance Announces 2021 Advancement Learning Series Webinar Topics


The Alliance is pleased to announce our topics for the 2021 Advancement Learning Series webinars for the donation and transplantation community of practice.

The Advancement Learning Series, The Alliance’s flagship professional learning program, is an online series of hour-long classes presented several times per month. Experts discuss cutting-edge topics ranging from innovations in the field to emerging best practices for broader implementation. Each topic is identified by members of The Alliance’s expert faculty workgroups, who identify critical topics impacting the donation and transplantation community. They then select leading national experts to share critical insights in four multidisciplinary content areas: Donation Focus, Transplant Focus, Innovation Focus and Brain Death Focus.
