$0.00 Despite the large increase in the number of multi-organ transplants (MOTs) performed over the past few years, challenges still exist in this arena. Among these unresolved issues are a lack of standardized MOT eligibility criteria across institutions, regions and different organ combinations. Ethical issues have also arisen regarding equity in organ allocation amidst a limited organ supply, as many MOT candidates get priority allocation for nonprimary organs versus individuals requiring that organ as a single transplant; this prioritization may impact optimal recipient and graft survival as well. In this session, learn more about multi-organ allocation and its accompanying challenges, risks, benefits, and expected outcomes, as well as the limitations of MOT for potential recipients.
Posttransplant Diagnostics: Utilizing Biomarkers and Genomics to Optimize Immunosuppression and Reduce Complications

  • ASWB - Social Workers
$0.00 In this activity, participants will review conventional rejection-monitoring parameters and will identify current and emerging acute-rejection biomarkers. A closer look at data — regarding such biomarkers as donor-derived cell-free DNA, gene expression profiles, mRNA transcripts, immune effector pathway molecules, cell subsets and chemokines — will provide clarity about their predictive accuracy and value in rejection monitoring, as well as their ability to improve outcomes through rapid identification of transplant-organ dysfunction.
Updates on Xenotransplantation and the Artificial Kidney

$0.00 This activity will provide an overview of geriatric and frailty assessment tools that can assist in guiding cancer- and transplant-related decision making through the risk stratification of older individuals before therapy is initiated. Data surrounding the relationship among increased age, geriatric- and frailty-assessment results, and disease outcomes will also be explored. Key considerations in how to best incorporate these sometimes time-intensive assessments into practice will be outlined, along with discussion of how interprofessional collaboration among members of the health care team in the creation of care plans can facilitate quality care.
