Main Event

ELPAT is the movement for the Ethical, Legal, and Psychosocial Aspects of Transplantation.

Experts from all over the world are invited to express their views on overcoming global transplant issues.



Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the organizing committee it is our pleasure to invite you to the 4th ELPAT Congress on Ethical, Legal and Psychosocial Aspects of Organ Transplantation. The congress will take place from 22-25 April 2016 in the Angelicum Congress Centre, Rome, Italy.

This conference is unique. It is different to other medically-oriented transplant conferences in that it addresses all other aspects of transplantation: ethical, legal, and psychosocial. Experts from all over the world will express their views on overcoming global transplant challenges.

The conference welcomes professionals including ethicists, philosophers, physicians, lawyers, criminologists, anthropologists, psychologists, coordinators, nurse practioners and policy-makers involved in the field of organ donation and transplantation.

ELPAT is an interactive platform that supports the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experiences by encouraging dialogue and facilitating research. ELPAT is an official Committee of the European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT) and was founded during the 1st congress in April 2007 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The 2nd congress was held in April 2010 with the aim of expanding the European platform to new EU Member States. The 3rd congress was held in April 2013 with the aim of bridging the divide between international commitments, global outreach and realisation of their potential to improve lives of patient across the world. The 4th congress aims to bring together various disciplines to address global challenges in organ transplantation.

We will achieve these aims through interactive plenary debates, innovative focus sessions, and in-depth workshops on topics that are relevant to transplant professionals worldwide. Submitted abstracts will be clustered according to theme or integrated into the focus sessions and workshops. In addition, there are 2 all-day sessions on hot topics for clinicians. There will of course also be opportunities for networking through social and cultural activities.

We trust that you will enjoy not only our conference, but also the history, culinary delights and ancient architecture of Rome. We look forward to meeting you in Rome.

Yours sincerely,

Willem Weimar (The Netherlands) and Franco Citterio (Italy),

Congress Chairs
