Pediatric Transplantation: Emerging Trends, Innovations and Challenges
Boston Children's Hospital's Pediatric Transplant Center will hold its biannual pediatric transplantation conference on September 19, 2014, at Simmons College in Boston.
The series of informative, 20- to 30-minute talks will be delivered by pediatric transplant experts and cover several important issues. Attending nurses, social workers, pharmacists, dietitians, case managers, doctors and other care providers will gain keen insight into the rapidly evolving field of pediatric transplant medicine and practical information they can use in their own practice.
Key topics to be addressed include:
- ethical considerations in patient selection for organ transplant
- addressing infectious challenges in children post transplant
- multivisceral transplants as treatment for large tumors
- social media and transplant medicine
- innovations in cardiac transplant
- approaching potential donor families
5.6 nursing contact hours will be awarded. Social work and pharmacy hours are pending.
