November 20, 2016 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: W178

Session Description

The revised kidney allocation system for deceased donor kidneys was implemented in December 2014. In this session, experts in the field discuss the impact that the new system has had on different patient populations and what it means for individual patients approaching listing for transplant.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. summarize changes in the new system; 2. identify patient populations that have benefitted in the new system; 3. identify patient populations that have undergone lower rates of transplant in the new system; and 4. explain how the system impacts individual patients listed for transplant.
