The emphasis this year will be on problems facing a transplant in sensitised individuals with HLA antibodies, mechanisms of AMR, novel strategies to prevent AMR by targeting complement or coagulation systems, mechanisms of immunological tolerance and novel ways to induce it and current and next generation Treg therapies.

Optimising Kidney Utilisation Virtual Course – King’s College London

Date: 07 October 2022

Application deadline: 25 September 2022

Please note that this virtual course will be running again this year, and that it has been re-designed for transplant surgeons and nephrologists with an interest in deceased donor kidney transplantation.

Decisions on whether to accept or decline a deceased donor kidney transplant offer, and who best to implant an organ into, are challenging and complex. This course aims to provide a framework and evidence-base on how to approach these decisions. The course has been re-designed for 2022 and will now include a dedicated breakout session for nurses. There will also be a focus on emerging issues within kidney utilisation, such as the use of organs from SARS-CoV-2 positive deceased donors.

The course will be hosted by clinicians from Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT): Mr Chris Callaghan (consultant transplant surgeon), Mr Jonathon Olsburgh (consultant transplant surgeon) and Dr Rachel Hilton (consultant nephrologist). They will be joined by consultants and senior nursing colleagues from across the UK, and the US.
