The Living Donor: Ethics, Risks, and Overcoming Barriers

April 12, 2018

Living kidney donation has not increased in volume over the last decade. In this symposium we wish to explore the risks of kidney donation, especially in light of a newer data. This live-webinar will discuss the medically complex kidney donor and how to mitigate those risks.  The ethics of kidney donation will be explored, especially in the younger donor. Lastly, participants will learn practical solutions to increase kidney donation in the years to come.
