The Immunosuppression Balancing Act: Preserving Long-Term Allograft Function for Optimal Patient Outcomes

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. Outcomes of renal and liver transplantation have improved; yet, allograft loss remains a substantial problem associated with increased morbidity, mortality, and costs.

Education to transplant clinicians about evaluating all aspects of post-transplant care, including regular monitoring, can lead to a reduction in allograft dysfunction or loss. In addition, improving the patient-provider dialogue can foster adherence to treatment and careful monitoring of medication levels to maintain quality of life. Patient perspectives, integrated in the symposium design, highlight the challenges and opportunities to coordinating care with patients in alignment with the priorities of the National Quality Strategy.

This archived CME Outfitters 75-minute symposium features expert faculty presenting the latest evidence on antibody-mediated complications, regular monitoring strategies to optimize immunosuppression, and ways to engage patients to promote adherence and improve outcomes.
