The Impact of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion on Organ Donation Outcomes

Tuesday, August 17, 2021, at 2:00pm

The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.

The sessions encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: In this session, we will highlight the impact that biases of healthcare professionals, whether conscious or unconscious, can have on families of colors. We will discuss the funnel effect that occurs as it relates to the impact that this can have on the OPOs ability to effectively support families, engage in donation discussions, and obtain authorization.

Added Learning Opportunity (optional) We encourage you to continue with us for an optional 30-minute Breakout Session that will take place following this session at 3pm ET/2pm CT/ 1pm MT/12 pm PT. These breakout discussions will serve as a value opportunity to connect with your peers in the community in small, collaborative groups and apply lessons learned from the general session. Following the breakout session, we will reconvene with our speakers to share key insights and strategies identified. The areas of focus for this session include:

  • How to Effectively Huddle with Hospital Partners
  • Methods of Engagement with Security
  • How to Effectively Engage with Potential Donor Families
