Donor Advocate Symposium 2016
When: Friday, Nov 04, 2016
What: Baylor Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute in conjunction with the Camenae Group is honored to host the 5th Annual Donor Advocate Symposium at the Magnolia Hotel Dallas Park Cities on Friday, November 4th, 2016. Living donor transplantation is a key part of restoring health in patients with severe kidney or liver disease or end-stage organ failure. Nurses, clinicians, clergy and social workers play a pivotal role in communicating the living donor option to patients, families, friends and other potential living donors. They typically face a myriad of questions regarding cost, psychosocial issues, ethical issues, long-term donor health, paired donation, transplant outcomes, and the role of the media. The purpose of the Donor Advocate Symposium is to: 1) Update, educate and inform registered nurses, transplant nurse coordinators, social workers, donor advocates, clergy and other professionals who work with transplant candidates. 2) Enhance and improve clinical behavior to increase participation in the living donor process. Speakers and panelists will present real life cases and initiate conversations with the audience about the issues.
Who: - Dialysis Center Nurses - Physicians - Clergy - Social Workers - Ethicists - Nurse Coordinators - Philosophers - Anyone with an interest in living donor transplantation
