Donor Management Research Consensus Conference
September 16 – 17, 2013
The Organ Donation and Transplantation Alliance, through a cooperative agreement with HRSA, is pleased to offer the Donor Management Research Consensus Conference to be held September 16-17, 2013 in the Washington, DC area. This meeting will allow members of the DTCP to come together to identify challenges that the community has identified related to donor management research. Participants will work toward consensus on issues related to donors, identify issues related to informed consent in the recipient, recognize and address informed consent issues regarding the effect of research on organs that are not receiving the direct impact of the research protocol, and promote donor management research and human subjects processes that are satisfactory to donor hospitals, donation community, transplant community, and the public.

- To leverage these efforts in a unified process to optimize donor management within agreed upon parameters respecting donors, families, and recipients
