The Alliance Curates Resources to Aid in Understanding and Responding to NASEM Report Recommendations


In 2022, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) made several recommendations to address racial and other disparities, reduce the nonuse of donated organs, and reduce or eliminate variations in the performance of transplant centers and OPOs.  The report is entitled, “Realizing the Promise of Equity in the Organ Transplantation System.”

To be responsive to the recommendations, The Alliance has curated a list of resources to help the community understand the recommendations and begin implementing changes.  

“The NASEM Report contains a critical set of recommendations that will help guide the community of practice for the next decade,” said Karri Hobson-Pape, Executive Director of The Alliance. “We plan to provide an easy-to-access set of resources for professionals to utilize as they evaluate opportunities in their organization. In addition, as our learning programs are developed in the future, we will have the NASEM recommendations guide many of the topics.”

Resources include: 

  • Background information, including links to the original report
  • Programs from The Alliance Conversation Series and Advancement Series, including a variety of on-demand webinar recordings and upcoming live learning programs.
  • Other Resources from The Alliance Community Resource Toolbox, including journal articles, presentations and more.

Two specific presentations directly address the report and its recommendations for a path forward:
