About the Session

Part I: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm | Audience Q&A: 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Program Chairs: Kymberly Watt, Deniz Balci, James Findlay

With a continuing demand for liver transplantation and a limited organ supply, it is necessary to optimize care at all stages of the transplant continuum. At this timely, informative program, faculty will provide participants with updated information on relevant topics across the transplant process to highlight ways to provide optimal care to transplant patients at all points of their experience.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the utility of living donor liver transplant, organs with chronic viral infection, machine perfusion and social media in enhancing transplant access.
  • Expand the knowledge about evolving concepts in perioperative risk management such as cirrhotic cardiomyopathy and extracorporeal organ support.
  • Apply a universal approach to post transplant long term care involving prevention of organ damage and malignancy and infection-related travel risk.
