We offer several webinar opportunities to help you learn more about policy and bylaws proposals that are available for public comment.
Liver Committee Special Public Comment
The OPTN/UNOS Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee is developing a proposal to replace donor service areas and regions as units of geographic distribution for liver and intestine organ offers. The committee will seek public comment on their proposal in a special session beginning October 8.
Because the public comment period will not overlap with the fall regional meeting schedule, each of the regions will host a webinar for members to learn about and discuss the proposal.
A national webinar was held Oct. 9, 2018 to review this proposal. Listen to the recording.
- Change to Hospital-Based OPO Voting Privileges
- Changes to Islet Bylaws
- Tracking Pediatric Transplant Outcomes Following Transition to Adult Care
The purpose of these webinars is to provide members, especially those who do not normally attend their regional meeting, an opportunity to learn about the proposals on the discussion agenda. Attendees will be permitted to ask questions during the webinars, but the regional meetings will still be the formal avenue for regional discussion and voting.
The discussion webinars will be held on the following dates and times:
- Addressing HLA Typing Errors
- Pancreas Program Functional Inactivity
- Proposed Frameworks of Distribution
