Since the first kidney transplant in 1954, organ donation has developed significantly and may affect any of us professionally and/or personally. According to NHS Blood and Transplant, between April 2022 and early January 2023 in the UK, 2726 people had received a transplant but 6731 people were waiting for one.

This multi-disciplinary and multi-professional meeting will discuss all the clinical, professional and ethical aspects of organ donation including practicalities and legal implications. It will be of interest to clinicians from all specialties, Coroners, lawyers and police. 

Participants will be able to: 

  • Explain the extent of and challenges to organ transplantation in the UK in 2023
  • Describe the ethical, legal and clinical requirements of such procedures
  • Understand some of the experiences and consequences of a donor’s relative and those of a recipient
  • Appreciate some of the practical aspects and implications for the professional groups involved

A CPD certificate will be issued to those attending. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the event for those who attend in person.
