Concepts related to redesigning liver distribution-The OPTN/UNOS Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee is meeting on June 22
Following the September 2014 liver distribution forum the Liver Committee formed three ad hoc subcommittees. Each was directed to study and offer recommendations on key issues identified by forum participants. An additional subcommittee was revived to address ways to increase liver donation and utilization. Representatives from the subcommittees will present findings and recommendations based on their review of data and community input.
The OPTN/UNOS Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee seeks further public input on concepts related to redesigning liver distribution. Representatives from subcommittees formed by the committee will present data-driven findings and consensus recommendations on key issues identified by the community during the September 2014 forum. Forum participants are encouraged to ask questions and offer additional feedback based on the subcommittee presentations. The Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee will consider this input in any future policy development.
The Liver Intestine Committee is having another meeting on June 22 in Chicago. You can participate in the webcast. Register here.
