5th ELPAT Congress
Developing Dialogue - Pioneering Practice
26-29 April, Krakow, Poland
ELPAT is a European platform that brings continuity and progress in European research and dialogue on ‘Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of organ Transplantation’. The theme of this ELPAT congress is Developing dialogue – Pioneering Practice. We aim to (1) create a multidisciplinary scientific forum for in-depth discussion of issues that are currently challenging the field and (2) through this dialogue to pioneer practices that contribute to improvement in outcomes in transplantation.
Key topics that are currently challenging professionals working in transplantation and donation and will be high on the agenda at this conference include:
> Global kidney exchange
> Implementation and impact of opting out
> Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation
> High risk donors and recipients
> Organ trade and trafficking
> Living donation
> Deceased donation
> Pediatric donation and transplantation
> Ethical and Legal aspects of transplantation
> Psychological care of donors and recipient
