Speaker: Matt Cooper, MD • Medstar Georgetown Transplant Institute
Moderator: Harini Chakkera, MD • Mayo Clinic Hospital

After participating in this webinar, the learner will be able to:

  1. Define the components of a successful living donor kidney program to evaluate an efficient number of FTE’s and assistant personnel as well as developing and cultivating a culture within that personnel to best support living donors, their support staff, and their needs.
  2. Appraise the current resource allocation of their current living donor program and analyze where investments might be best undertaken to begin process improvements.
  3. Evaluate current living donor program metrics beyond number of potential donors and number of organs transplanted to work towards a more critical evaluation of measuring success in personnel activities as well as patient safety and program quality.
