Implementing a Successful Workforce Model in a Virtual Environment

Tuesday, March 30, 2021, at 2:00pm

Over the last year, organizations nation-wide have had to redevelop many of their processes to ensure the safety of their patients and staff while continuing their efforts in facilitating the lifesaving gift of donation. During this webinar, we will explore the response protocols implemented by a large transplant center and an Organ Procurement Organization (OPO). Each organization will provide an overview of how the COVID19 pandemic has impacted their clinical practices and share insights on how they each managed to successfully overcome these challenging circumstances.
