Conference: British Transplantation Society Ethics Symposium and Living Donor Forum

Winter Ethics Symposium

23 November 2017

Paediatric Organ Donation and Transplantation in the UK

Mary Ward House, London WC1H 9SN

This year our focus is Paediatric Organ Donation and Transplantation in the UK
We have incorporated complex clinical cases, professional expertise, personal experience and public policy into an ambitious programme to address a range of challenging ethical issues.
Representatives from NHSBT and BTS will highlight obstacles to implementing paediatric donation and organ allocation prioritisation in the UK.
Clinicians working in neonatal and paediatric intensive care units and those involved in the care and possible transplantation of children will set out how a range of potential paediatric donors and transplant recipients are identified and managed and provide insight into factors affecting the development of strategies to expand the paediatric donor pool.
Paediatric donor and recipient families will share their personal stories, and ways to identify and address the psychological impact of bereavement in paediatric donation will be discussed.
Management of the adolescent living donor and strategies to optimise adherence and transition among adolescent recipients will be addressed.
Living Donor Forum

Living Donor Risk

Mary Ward House, London WC1H 9SN

This year our theme is Living Donor risk, and in particular where the clinician perspective may be at odds with that of the prospective donor. Is this Caring Concern or Pompous Paternalism? How difficult is it for Living Donors to donate?
The day will take the form of an interactive discussion and debate between physicians and surgeons, coordinators, patients and carers. Come with an open mind or prepare to have your assumptions challenged!

Student rates are available.
