New educational offerings for transplant social workers

We recently added two presentations specifically for transplant social workers to UNOS Connect, the comprehensive learning management system for transplant professionals. Both presentations were given at the 2017 conference of the Society for Transplant Social Workers.

Psychiatric Evaluation of the Living Donor
Category: Donor
Psychiatric evaluations of living donors are complex and that complexity increases when psychosocial problems are present in the potential donor. This offering explores the requirements for psychiatric evaluation as well as how to identify high-risk donors and reduce psychosocial complications after the donation.

Smoothing the Path to Adulthood
Category: Pediatrics
Transplant presents adolescents with unique challenges and demands. This offering helps transplant social workers identify the scope of these challenges and help teens and young adults transition to full responsibility for their health care.

Coming soon: Developing Opioid Team Guidelines
This presentation walks you through how one hospital significantly reduced their opioid prescription rate. You can apply their problem-solving tactics to any of your workplace challenges.
