The two-day conference is designed to provide a unique opportunity to hear UCSF Transplant experts present a comprehensive review and update on recent advances in adult and pediatric transplantation. Leaders in the field will share their medical and surgical expertise in solid organ transplant and living donor topics. Plenary sessions include the future of transplantation, the changing transplant population, management of post-transplant infections, and other contemporary and controversial topics. Organ-specific clinical tracks will focus on current issues and patient management strategies appropriate for each area of specialization. This program has been coordinated through the University of California, San Francisco, Division of Abdominal Transplant Surgery and the Heart and Lung Transplant Program.
The target audience is a broad cross-section of health care professionals who care for pre- and post-transplant patients. Heart, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation will be discussed. The symposium content is designed for community/referring physicians, transplant nurses, coordinators, administrators, advanced health providers, pharmacists, social workers, and all members of the transplant health care team who are interested in improving their clinical practice or patient management during transplantation.
