Improving Outcomes Through Proactive Monitoring of Transplant Patients

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The current goal of transplant medicine and immunology is to develop strategies to extend the life and functionality of every allograft. While outcomes of renal and liver transplantation have improved, allograft loss remains a substantial problem associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and costs. Identifying the pathologic pathways responsible for allograft loss and developing targeted therapeutic interventions are currently some of the biggest challenges in transplant medicine. Education to clinicians about the various factors that can result in allograft loss and optimal treatment can improve the quality of life of transplant patients.

Involving the patient as an active participant in treatment is essential to medication adherence and monitoring. To best represent the challenges patients face in their transplant journey, audio responses from interviews with patients who have received a transplant will be at the center of the discussion in this CME Outfitters Live and On Demand. Their voice will complement the expert faculty discussion of the latest evidence on antibody-mediated complications, regular monitoring strategies to optimize immunosuppression, and engaging patients in discussions to promote adherence and improve outcomes.
