The primary objective of this consensus conference was to identify and recommend best practices related to living kidney donor education and evaluation processes, communication processes, attenuation of participation barriers and donor follow-up care in the multi-center KPD setting. You will learn about alternative KPD allocation systems currently in use, challenges unique to KPD in terms of donor evaluation, geography, financing, histocompatibility and implementation and future directions for KPD allocation.
