Matching organs. Saving lives.

Education

New ABO subtyping resource available

Living donor recovery hospitals and OPOs will commonly subtype a living or deceased donor’s primary blood type to see if there is an opportunity to allocate organs to a broader group of potential recipients. A new e-learning module (ELM) addresses the importance of ABO subtyping, highlights the related OPTN policy requirements, and discusses the decisions you must consider when allocating organs using ABO subtyping. 

Where do I find the resource?

This recording is now available in UNOS Connect, UNOS’ learning management system. Look for ABO Subtyping in the UNOS Connect course catalog under the Patient Safety Category. Register for this course and click the words “Entrance Survey” to begin. 

Are CEPTCs awarded?

You’ll receive .25 CEPTCs once you complete this ELM. In order to receive a certificate, you must also complete an evaluation and pass the assessment.
