The Alliance Announces 2022 Advancement Learning Series Topics


The Alliance is pleased to announce our topics for the 2022 Advancement Learning Series webinars for the donation and transplantation community of practice.

The Advancement Learning Series, The Alliance’s well-recognized 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 effective practices for broader implementation.

“The Advancement Learning Series is an engaging forum that cascades the knowledge of leading experts in the field. Our ultimate goal is to offer opportunities for community collaboration that equip healthcare professionals with the necessary tools to advance donation and transplantation practices and improve patient survival,” says Deanna Fenton, Program Manager at The Alliance. “With the ongoing support of the entire community of practice, we’re able to accomplish just that.”

Critical areas and topics to explore through The Alliance learning programs are curated from the feedback received from the community-wide “You Share, We Listen” survey as well as input from The Alliance Board of Directors, National Councils, and Faculty Workgroups, which are comprised of leaders within the field. The expert faculty workgroups overseeing the development of the Advancement Learning Series then collaborate to further develop each by assessing the priority area(s) of focus and identifying leading national experts to share critical insights on those areas. The Advancement Learning Serious spotlights four multidisciplinary content areas: Donation, Transplant, Innovation, and Brain Death.
