Optimising Kidney Utilisation Virtual Course – King’s College London

Date: Wednesday 16th June 2021

Application deadline: 07 June 2021

This new virtual course has been designed for transplant surgeons and nephrologists with an interest in deceased donor kidney transplantation. This will be the first course in the UK dedicated to organ utilisation issues.

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 in how to approach these decisions.

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 other consultants from the Trust and across the UK.

For general queries or booking information, please contact Shaleem Grant (shaleem.grant@kcl.ac.uk).

For queries on course content, speaker and any other academic concerns, please contact Mr Chris Callaghan (Chris.Callaghan@gstt.nhs.uk).
