Collaborative Innovations in Organ Procurement: A Deep Dive into NRP Implementation – What Have We Learned?

Thursday, February 22, 2024, at 3:00pm

Normothermic regional perfusion (NRP) is an innovative approach to maintaining organ viability following the determination of circulatory death (DCD). The comprehensive and collaborative approach required to facilitate an NRP recovery has increased organ utilization while reducing waitlist deaths. In this session, we will be joined by leaders in the community who will share their respective journeys to NRP implementation in partnership with their local OPO or receiving Transplant Center(s). Methods on how to engage key stakeholders will be shared along with examples of how to overcome potential barriers, resulting in more lives saved through this increasingly prevalent method of procurement.
