UNOS will provide resources that transplant professionals can use to help educate both their patients as well as other medical professionals who work in dialysis and treat kidney disease. All resources will be available online as they are developed, including a brochure for patients explaining what will change. A list of some of the professional education sessions that start later this month may be found through TransplantPro.
