Event Overview
Welcome message:

This one-day educational symposium will examine kidney and pancreas transplantation with a special emphasis on the multidisciplinary approach in pre and post transplant care.The conference will provide updates on clinical trials in kidney transplantation and immunosuppressive therapies,review measures that

could enable live kidney transplantation, offer insight on complex post-transplant issues with focus on specific population subsets deemed higher risk such as patients with HIV infection, HCV infection, patients with preformed anti-HLA antibodies, higher BMI, and individuals at risk of medical non-adherence. Additionally, the course will discuss avenues to explore advances in immunosuppression to enable a patient specific individualized approach to minimize the risk of post-transplant complications. 


After completing this activity, the participant will be able to;

Discuss recent advances in kidney and/or pancreas transplant

Identify factors that both limit and enhance access to kidney and/or pancreas transplant

Identify patients who may be at risk for both non-compliance and for suboptimal transplant outcomes and implement measures to eliminate and/or minimize such risks and complications

Identify specific patient subsets who are considered at higher risk for lack of access to transplantation and inferior post-transplant outcomes and identify and facilitate in such patient subgroups, such as those with HIV and HCV infections transplantation

Define what constitutes immunologic high risk status and how to overcome such barriers to transplantation

Identify the role of obesity in kidney transplant patients with focus on nutrition

Review pharmacological options to facilitate access, improve post-transplant outcomes and manage HIV infection in transplant patients

Review both the challenges and options for personalization with regards to specific patient subsets and the pharmacological interventions to overcome those challenges

Review the advancements in living donor nephrectomy techniques which have led to increase in live donor transplantation

Recognize the cardiovascular disease burden complexities in patients with kidney failure and identify strategies to reduce risk and improve outcomes

Review pancreatic transplant as treatment option for diabetics with end organ damage due to complications from diabetes
