Organ donation is one of the truest acts of solidarity. Yet, policies and practices in donation, transplantation, and aftercare differ across Europe, resulting in unequal transplantation access and disparate patient outcomes. The European Health Union must strive for equity in access and quality of care no matter where patients live, creating a level playing field across the bloc.
Building upon the EU Action Plan on Organ Donation and Transplantation (2009-2015), this session will explore what needs to be done, and by whom, to facilitate equity, efficiency, quality, and safety for all patients so nobody is left behind. An EU-wide data framework, patient literacy, national policies, and clinical practice guidelines can help ensure a successful transplantation journey.
Our speakers encompass patients, clinicians, data experts, national officials, and EU policymakers. We invite you to join this session to help the European Society for Organ Transplantation validate and refine its Manifesto, obtaining further endorsement in the future.
