Optimizing the use of increased risk donors - Webinar
Presented by: Dr. Atul Humar, CNTRP Project 5 lead and Director of the UHN Multi-Organ Transplant Program

The CST and the CNTRP developed guidelines to optimize use of organs from increased risk deceased donors. These guidelines have been developed into a Resource Tool Kit, by the Trillium Gift of Life Network, to help all transplant surgeons and transplant physicians develop an approach to use increased risk donor organs and explain the risks and benefits to their patients. These efforts may lead to expanding the donor pool coupled with decreased wait-list times. 

To promote these guidelines and introduce this Tool Kit resource (which includes risk calculations, draft consent forms and patient scripts), the CNTRP is organizing a webinar for transplant Surgeons, Physicians and Coordinators to develop an approach to using increased risk donor organs.

Webinar dates & time: 
Tuesday, March 21 at 1pm PT / 2pm MT / 3pm CT / 4 pm ET - (60 min)

2017 International Meeting on Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease 

Scientific Co-Chairs
Eberhard L. Renner, University of Manitoba
Brent A. Neuschwander-Tetri
, Saint Louis University School of Medicine

Objectives
In parallel with the obesity/diabetes epidemic, the incidence and prevalence of NAFLD continues to rise in Canada and elsewhere. While NAFLD leads to an increasing health care burden, our understanding and the therapeutic options remain limited. It is therefore imperative that the level of knowledge and understanding of this liver disease be increased. This will require a multi-pronged approach to adequately address it from prevention, diagnosis, management, treatment and research perspectives.

The objectives for the meeting include:

• To review current knowledge on NAFLD from various perspectives
• To determine knowledge gaps to be filled by future research
• To foster informal exchange between leaders in the field and engage young investigators
• To foster research collaboration on NAFLD within Canada, North America and beyond

Participants
The 1.5-day education program aims to attract an estimated audience of 100 attendees with the target audience being

• Clinicians (of any background) interested in NAFLD
• Young investigators with an academic interest in NAFLD 
• Scientists interested in NAFLD
