While the lifesaving value of transplantation is clear, the promise of transplantation remains unfulfilled for far too many for a number of reasons:
- The circumstances allowing for organ and tissue to occur are rare.
- Myths and unfounded fears inhibit individuals from registering as donors and families from authorizing donation on their loved one’s behalf.
- Sometimes potential donors are not identified in time or physicians approach families prematurely, resulting in lost donation opportunities.
- In some places, donation and transplant professionals are hampered by underdeveloped medical, legal, and professional structures and resources.
Produced in partnership with OneLegacy, LifeSource, and TPM of Spain, the Transplant Donation Global Leadership Symposium (GLS) is a unique learning experience to explore best practices and innovation in addressing the most pressing leadership challenges facing the donation and transplantation field. Robust dialogue and collaborative teamwork help foster global relationships, as participants gain broadened leadership skills, innovative ideas, and expanded professional networks.
