UNOS Transplant Management Forum
Transplant administrators from across the country attend the UNOS Transplant Management Forum year after year, for its educational sessions and networking opportunities. While many of the sessions are geared to transplant administrators, the forum is also an excellent opportunity for clinical and financial coordinators, social workers, OPO executive directors, physicians and surgeons, to enhance their understanding of how a program operates.

What about donors with other diseases such as Alzheimer’s? How about patients with Lou Gehrig’s? How much should candidates be told about their donor’s history? Does that change when they have a living donor? Listing practices will also be covered.
